Strenx® 960 Plus
Download data sheet
Strenx® 900 Plus high-strength structural steel has a guaranteed minimum yield strength of 900 MPa. The steel provides a unique combination of strength and impact toughness together with first-rate workshop properties. It is an excellent choice for advanced load-bearing equipment such as mobile and loader cranes, trailer chassis and agriculture equipment. Strenx® 960 Plus meets the requirements of EN 10025-6 grade S960QL. Strenx® 960 Plus has superior bendability and surface quality, high weldability, and guaranteed flatness, thickness and bending properties for predictable performance in the workshop.

1) Impact testing according to EN ISO 148-1 is performed on thicknesses ≥ 6mm. For thicknesses between 6.0 - 8.0 mm, sub-size Charpy V-specimens are used. The specified min value is then proportional to the cross-sectional area of the specimen compared to a full-size specimen (10x10 mm).
The steel is grain refined. *) Intentional alloying elements.

The delivery condition is Q+T (Quenched and Tempered). Strenx® Plus is supplied in as rolled surface condition, pickled surface is available in a limited thickness range.
Delivery requirements can be found in SSAB’s brochure Strenx® Guarantees or on www.ssab.com.
Strenx® Plus has very good weldability with good toughness and strength in the welds. Strenx® Plus has good forming and cutting performance.
Strenx® Plus is not suited for applications requiring hot working or heat treatments at temperatures above 400°C, since the material then maylose its guaranteed properties.
