Boron Tube 24

SSAB Boron 24 Tubes

With its superior cleanliness and fine-grain microstructure, SSAB Boron Tube allows for critical forming operations, such as punching, shearing, and stamping – in as-rolled condition – with minimized risk of microcracking. Quenching in oil or in water-polymer solutions works equally well, with the latter providing additional environmental benefits. SSAB Boron steel minimizes or eliminates the need for tempering after quenching, reducing energy costs and manufacturing time.
