              Strenx® Flatness Guarantees offer narrower tolerances compared to EN 10131.

              Flatness guarantees only apply for cut to length sheets.

              Delivery Conditions

              Cold rolled. Strenx® Cold rolled products are available with mill or cut edge.

              Delivery requirements can be found in SSAB’s brochure Strenx® Guarantees or

              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 356°F, 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.

              Add 15% strength by upgrading

              By upgrading from Strenx® 960 CR to Strenx® 1100 CR, you gain almost 15% higher yield strength. This extra strength can be used to make more high performing components and parts or reduce weight. When you like to discuss upgrading, you are always welcome to get in touch with our steel specialists at SSAB Tech Support or SSAB Knowledge Service Center.
