SSAB Weathering 550
The high-strength, hot-rolled steel for extra weather resistance and long life
With its anti-corrosive properties, SSAB Weathering 550 minimizes the need for maintenance and corrosion-prevention treatment, contributing significantly to low maintenance costs throughout the product lifecycle.
In addition to low maintenance costs, the reduced need for corrosion prevention means less use of paint and solvents, making SSAB Weathering 550 an environmental friendly choice of steel.
In manufacturing, the steel contributes to excellent productivity thanks to its good formability, toughness and weldability.
The high-strength of the steel in combination with these properties makes it easier to build lighter, stronger products with increased payload and lower fuel consumption. Typical applications are containers, railway wagons, pylons and many others.
