    General Product Description

    The high-strength structural steel at 960 MPa

    Strenx® 960MC is a hot-rolled structural steel made for cold forming, with a minimum yield strength of 960 MPa.

    Strenx® 960MC meets and exceeds the requirements of S960MC in EN 10149-2. These cut-to-length sheets feature excellent thickness accuracy and surface quality in relation to strength level, providing an outstanding finish to the final products.

    Typical applications include advanced lifting devices and lighter transport solutions and components.  

    Dimension Range

    Strenx® 960MC is available as cut to length sheets with mill edge in thicknesses of 3.00 - 10.00 mm, widths up to 1600 mm and lengths up to 13 meters.

                    Fabrication and Other Recommendations

                    Welding, bending and machining

                    Strenx® 960MC has good welding, cold forming and cutting performance.

                    Strenx® 960MC is a cold forming steel not suited for heat treatments at temperatures above 400°C since the material then may lose its guaranteed properties.

                    For information concerning fabrication, see SSAB´s brochures on www.ssab.com or consult Tech Support.

                    Appropriate health and safety precautions must be taken when bending, welding, cutting, grinding or otherwise working on the products.

                    Ready to upgrade?

                    Upgrading from Strenx® 960MC to Strenx® 1100MC means you can improve the performance and reduce the weight of your equipment. The increase in yield strength by almost 15% allows for a substantial increase in the equipment’s load-bearing capacity. Our steel specialists at SSAB Tech Support or SSAB Knowledge Service Center look forward to give you an update on upgrading.
