Strenx®

Strenx® premium structural steel can take your business to new heights with stronger and lighter products. Whatever your industry – transportation, lifting, agriculture or construction.

In the never–ending battle for improved performance of steel products, less weight wins.

To make products lighter you need stronger steel that can be used in thinner dimensions. Strenx® performance steel is our solution to this challenge. We call it performance steel, because it adds performance beyond ordinary high strength steel. With Strenx steel, trailer manufacturers can specify more payload.
Truck owners can cut down on fuel consumption and CO, emissions. Crane operators can improve their business by reaching higher and further. Farmers can cover more acres in a day. That’s the beauty of Strenx steel: Whatever your application, Strenx offers new options for improving its performance.

Design Challenges and Rewards

Strenx Steel makes the sport of chasing percentages much more interesting. Not only to watch, but also to take part in.

In the hands of skilled and ambitious design engineers, Strenx steel canproduce outstanding results. Depending on the starting point, designers can cut 2U, 30, 40 percent and more weight of steel structures- and yet still achieve greater performance and a longer service life.
By thinking thinner you can achieve stronger and lighter solutions for a wide range of applications. Lifting and transportation are the primary areas where steel with a yield strength from 600 MPa and upwards is a game changer.
If a current design works fine with a lower strength steel. switching to Strenx steel can make it even better. However. by taking a more radical approach and starting over, the potential becomes even greater In reality, ti is seldom that we start with a blank screen. Previous products. production facilities and other practicalities have a way of holding us back. However, a healthy dose of free thinking can reveal new ideas for stronger, lighter, and more competitive products. Strenx products, if you like. Working with steel in the 600-1300 MPa range will certainly challenge some preconceptions of steel design. In some cases it is almost like handling a brand new material. To support your new ideas, you are welcome to explore our design and innovation resources at the SSAB Knowledge Service Center. New design solutions can be tested virtually with the help or computer simulations for stress distribution fatigue conditions, and other design criteria. Now, let the race for percentages begin.

FROM 600 TO 1300* MPa

If you have ever thought that all steel is basically the same, Strenx performance steel will make you think differently. Strenx steel is strong and reliable from the surface to the core.

The first thing you will notice is the surface quality of Strenx steel. Thickness and flatness tolerances are equally impressive, and verified by the Strenx guarantees.

The properties within the steel – such as yield and tensile strength, bending performance and impact toughness – are also carefully tested to ensure reliability and consistency in every delivery.
