Structural steel

Structural steels

The description ‘structural steel’ usually applies to a ductile cold-forming steel with yield strengths from around 350 MPa up to 1300 MPa. Steels with higher yield strengths – typically starting at around 600 MPa – are often called advanced high-strength steel (AHSS).

Metal coatings

Metal coatings for coils and sheets

Metal coated products are made for applications that must withstand various corrosive environment, wherein they extend the service life of the end product by protecting the steel from corrosion.

Color coated

Color coated coils and sheets

Nordic quality steel for harsh weather and greener living

Overlay products

Overlay products

Premium chromium carbide overlays (CCO) work hard against wear.

Tools steel

Tool steel

Tool steel is the workhorse of the industrialized world. This highly versatile steel has a relatively low carbon content, usually between 0.7% and 1.5%.

Armor steel

Armor steel

Armor steel is a high-strength low-alloyed structural steel which has been processed to give high penetration resistance and blast protection. The steel’s properties are reached by quenching and tempering to reach the desired balance between hardness and toughness.
