              Fabrication and Other Recommendations

              Welding, bending and machining

              Strenx® Cold rolled products has good cold forming, welding and cutting performance.

              Strenx® Cold rolled products is not suited for applications requiring hot working or heat treatments at temperatures above 180°C, since the material then may lose its guaranteed properties.

              For information concerning fabrication, see SSAB´s brochures on or consult Tech Support.

              Appropriate health and safety precautions must be taken when bending, welding, cutting, grinding or otherwise working on the products.

              Build it with 37% higher strength

              By upgrading from Strenx® 700 CR to Strenx® 960 CR, you gain 37% higher yield strength. This gives you opportunities to redesign your equipment for increased performance and reduced weight. Get in touch with our steel specialists at SSAB Tech Support or SSAB Knowledge Service Center for an update on upgrading.
