SSAB Steel handbooks

Order your individual copy or the complete Tech Library set today, and gain insight into working and designing with SSAB's high-strength steels.

Drawing on SSAB’s expertise in steelmaking and design, as well as thousands of applications globally, our Steel Handbooks provide in-depth theoretical background, application guidelines and step-by-step recommendations on topics like welding, forming, joining and design.

In addition to our classic guides, we publish the unique ”Welding of AHSS/UHSS Steel,” which aims to fill a knowledge gap about welding advanced high-strength and ultra-high-strength steels in the automotive industry. It combines in-depth theoretical background, detailed test results, application guidelines, and best-practice recommendations for coated and uncoated steels of this type.
