High quality flat bars made from Strenx® steel for structural applications

Prefabricated flat bars from SSAB Services are made from high-quality, high-strength Strenx® 700MC steel in sizes commonly used for beams (e.g., I-beams), flanges, webs, and many other demanding, load-bearing structures such as trailer chassis. Additional high-strength SSAB steel grades can also be specified as custom structural flat bars from our worldwide network of SSAB Steel Service Centers.

      Advantages of structural steel flat bars from SSAB Services

      SSAB flat bars in Strenx 700MC or Strenx 700MC Plus can be readily welded into larger structural components, such as I-beams.

      Offer lighter trailers with the same load capacity

      The high strength-to-weight ratio of flat bars made from Strenx 700MC steel gives OEMs the ability to offer lighter trailers, with better overall fuel efficiency, and higher load-carrying capacities, for increased revenue for their customers.

      Speed up your production while reducing inventory and scrap

      With narrower tolerances and excellent mechanical and cold-forming properties, structural steel flat bars made from Strenx 700MC let your workers set-up and weld faster than before. Because flat bars from SSAB Services are provided in “trailer sizes,” you eliminate both cutting and scrap, while reducing inventory needs. Let our flat bars help you reduce your total production costs while upgrading the structure of your products.
