ssab-strenxApril 20, 2015 – SSAB is launching Strenx, a new
high-strength structural steel product brand. This will open up new competitive
possibilities for customers to make stronger, lighter and more sustainable
products.

 

Strenx is designed for sectors where structural strength and
weight savings are key competitive factors, especially in the lifting, handling
and transportation industry. Strenx is also well-suited for agriculture, the
frames of heavy mobile machines, rolling stock, offshore and construction
sectors. Now customers will be able to design more competitive and sustainable
products – cranes that reach further, trailers that carry more payload, trucks
that use less fuel.

“For customers, this is a totally unique product since
Strenx now covers the three product brands Optim, Weldox and Domex that are
well-known trademarks of SSAB and the former Ruukki. Strenx embodies our over
50 years of experience in high-strength steels,” says Gregoire Parenty, Head of
Market Development at SSAB.

 

Strenx features a wide choice of high-strength structural
steels both in terms of strength and dimensional range. Yield strengths range from
600 Mpa to 1300 Mpa, which is the strongest steel available on the market.
Strenx is available in plate, strip and tubular products in thicknesses ranging
from 0.7 mm to 160 mm. 

 

“We give full support to designers and customers to help
them upgrade to Strenx. By sharing our in-depth experience and wide knowledge
of steel we can guarantee the best results for end-product performance,” adds
Gregoire Parenty.

 

Strenx comes with guaranteed product consistency, services
to help customers’ businesses and permanent assistance to enhance end-product
performance.
