SSAB Boron 42
Hardenable boron steels
Boron steel is a perfect base material for a variety of products, parts and components that require resistance against abrasive wear in combination with good toughness. SSAB Boron steels are also suitable for applications calling for high strength of complex structural components. The properties of SSAB Boron 42 after heat treatment ensure longer lifetime and opportunity to weight reduction. Good forming, bending, welding and cutting properties enable the manufacture of complex components and parts. Strip products can be delivered also in annealed condition, which offers opportunity for more demanding forming.
SSAB Boron 42 has been developed to be hardened either by heat treatment after workshop processing or by a direct hot forming and quenching process to obtain its final properties.
Hot rolled SSAB Boron 42 is delivered in hot rolled (as-rolled) condition as coils, slit coils and cut-to-length sheets.
