3.1 INTRODUCTION

The surface treatment of steel surface is often used, especially in an automotive industry, that creates the motive power for research, design and production. New methods of surface treatment are also developed having major influence on improvement the surface properties of steel sheets while keeping the price at reasonable level [1-3].
