SSAB Weathering 960
The high-strength steel for extra weather resistance and long life
With its corrosion resistant properties, SSAB Weathering 960 minimizes the need for maintenance and corrosion-prevention treatment, contributing significantly to low maintenance costs throughout the product lifecycle.
SSAB Weathering 960 allows for good paint adhesion. The intervals for repainting can be greatly extended compared to plain carbon steel since, if a damage to the paint layer occurs, SSAB Weathering steels has the ability to form a patina layer that minimize corrosion creepage under the paint and inhibits the formation of porous expanding rust.
In addition to low maintenance costs, the reduced need for corrosion prevention means less use of paint and solvents, making SSAB Weathering 960 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 and many others.
