advanced high-strength steels help to make it possible to develop safer and lighter vehicles with lower emissions.
Our advanced high-strength steels have been especially engineered for safety applications in cars with stringent requirements for reduced weight and high energy absorption.
Prolonged service life of machinery and equipment
SSAB’s wear steels are Quenched and Tempered (Q&T) steels that are used in a range of machinery and equipment in mining, quarrying, recycling and road building segments. All of these applications require the hardness and toughness that are characteristic of Q&T steels.
Use of Q&T steels in buckets, crushers, blades, shredders and tippers provides greater wear resistance, which in turn improves machinery performance and extends service life. Additionally, lighter weight machinery offers cost benefits to end-users and reduces the environmental impact over the machinery’s lifecycle.
Improved energy-efficiency and eco-friendliness with coatings
SSAB develops new functional surface coatings that lower energy consumption and maintenance costs, improve surface durability and extend the lifespan of buildings。 There are several coatings that contribute to more environmentally friendly and sustainable construction。
Thermal coatings reflect solar radiation when used on the building’s exterior and thermal radiation when used on the building’s interior leading to decreased energy consumption for heating and cooling.
Some coatings are partly based on plant oil instead of traditional fossil oil – a technology that has been patented by SSAB and is unique in the market. The result is an improved coated steel product, with a prolonged service lifetime and reduced environmental footprint.
