New steels allow lighter construction

SSAB Swedish Steel has developed a series of new cold rolled, ultra high strength steels called Docol UHS, with minimum tensile strength levels between 1000 and 1400MPa.

The new steel grades allow significantly lighter constructions to be built (and new construction solutions to be used) without compromising performance. The hardened drawn steels are delivered with a bright cold rolled surface which has not been oxidised. They are therefore suitable for use in continuous manufacturing processes.

SSAB Swedish Steel says it is the only company which has succeeded in developing a steel with these qualities for mass production.
