Rolling stock that lasts longer

Railway vehicles in SSAB Weathering steel are strong, hardwearing, take higher payloads and are relatively light compared to vehicles made from conventional steel. Add the corrosion-resistant properties and the rolling stock will have exceptionally long service life with low maintenance costs.

As passenger trains start and stop frequently, a lighter vehicle saves energy during the entire lifecycle.


High-strength SSAB Weathering steel can replace basic stainless steel grades such as 1.4003 as it is more cost-effective and easier to weld and bend.
