The high-strength structural steel at 960 MPa
Strenx® 960MC is a hot-rolled structural steel made for cold forming, with a minimum yield strength of 960 MPa.
Strenx® 960MC meets and exceeds the requirements of S960MC in EN 10149-2. These cut-to-length sheets feature excellent thickness accuracy and surface quality in relation to strength level, providing an outstanding finish to the final products.
Typical applications include advanced lifting devices and lighter transport solutions and components.

Strenx® 960MC is supplied in as rolled surface condition, pickled surface is available in a limited thickness range. The product is thermomechanically rolled.
Delivery requirements can be found in SSAB’s brochure Strenx® Guarantees or on www.ssab.com.
Strenx® 960MC has good welding, cold forming and cutting performance.
Strenx® 960MC is a cold forming steel not suited for heat treatments at temperatures above 400°C since the material then may lose its guaranteed properties.
For information concerning fabrication, see SSAB´s brochures on www.ssab.com or consult Tech Support.
Appropriate health and safety precautions must be taken when bending, welding, cutting, grinding or otherwise working on the products.
Upgrading from Strenx® 960MC to Strenx® 1100MC means you can improve the performance and reduce the weight of your equipment. The increase in yield strength by almost 15% allows for a substantial increase in the equipment’s load-bearing capacity. Our steel specialists at SSAB Tech Support or SSAB Knowledge Service Center look forward to give you an update on upgrading.
