MATERIAL ALTERNATIVES FOR TODAY'S EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM
Two recently developed sheet products offer material cost savings opportunities of approximately $2.50 per typical car with catalytic conversion system. Galvalume sheet steel, an aluminum-zinc alloy coated sheet, has been used successfully for grass shields replacing type 1 aluminum coated sheet at an approximate savings of 25found/lb. Chromized sheet, which has diffused layer of ferritic stainless steel on both surfaces of a special low carbon sheet, is suggested as a substitute for 400 Series Stainless Steel at a material cost benefit of approximately 15found/lb. Exhaust inlet tubes and convertor sheels of Chromized have been successfully tested.
