New high-strength structural steel brand opens up possibilities for stronger, lighter, more sustainable products
SSAB are launching Strenx, a new structural steel product brand which is said to offer the most extensive portfolio of high-strength steels on the market, opening up new possibilities for customers to make stronger, lighter and more sustainable products.
Strenx is designed for sectors where structural strength and weight savings are key competitive factors, especially in the lifting, handling and transportation industry. Strenx is also well-suited for the frames of heavy mobile machines, rolling stock, and for the construction sectors.
According to SSAB, customers will now be able to design more competitive and sustainable products – cranes that reach further, trailers that carry more payload, and trucks that use less fuel.
‘For customers, this is a totally unique product since Strenx now covers the three product brands – Optim, Weldox and Domex – that are well-known trademarks of SSAB and the former Ruukki. Strenx embodies our 50-plus years’ experience in high-strength steels,’ said Gregoire Parenty, head of market development at SSAB.
Strenx features the world’s widest choice of high-strength structural steels both in terms of strength and dimensional range. Yield strengths range from 600Mpa to 1,300Mpa, which is the strongest steel available on the market.
Moreover, Strenx is available in plate, strip and tubular products in thicknesses ranging from 0.7mm to 160mm.
‘We will give full support to designers and customers to help them upgrade to Strenx. By sharing our in-depth experience and wide knowledge of steel, we can guarantee the best results for end-product performance,’ added Mr Parenty.
