Enhancing Strength: SSAB Upgrades Strenx® 100XF to Strenx® 110XF

In the realm of structural engineering and material sciences, the pursuit of strength and durability is unceasing. SSAB, a global leader in high-strength steel, has been at the forefront of this quest, consistently pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. Their latest stride in this journey comes with the upgrade of their renowned Strenx® 100XF steel to the even stronger Strenx® 110XF. This advancement marks a significant milestone in the world of high-performance materials, promising enhanced capabilities and broader applications across various industries.

The Evolution of Strenx Series

SSAB’s Strenx series has long been synonymous with high-strength steel, offering exceptional performance in terms of strength, toughness, and sustainability. Strenx® 100XF, the predecessor to Strenx® 110XF, has already established itself as a go-to choice for industries requiring lightweight yet robust materials. From heavy lifting equipment to transportation vehicles and beyond, Strenx 100XF has been the backbone of many critical applications.However, the engineers recognized the potential for further improvement. 

Introducing Strenx® 110XF

Strenx®  110XF represents the culmination of SSAB’s dedication to excellence. With a higher yield strength and increased tensile strength compared to its predecessor, this upgraded steel variant opens doors to new possibilities in engineering design and performance optimization. The transition from Strenx® 100XF to Strenx® 110XF marks a significant leap forward in the pursuit of stronger, lighter, and more sustainable materials.

Key Benefits of Strenx® 110XF

  • The main technical advantage when switching from Strenx® 100XF to Strenx® 110XF is 10% higher yield strength and 7% higher tensile strength.
  • Using Strenx® 110XF can increase the safety factor of the design or can increase load capacity.
  • No changes are required in the workshop, both Strenx® 100XF and Strenx® 110XF have the same cutting, welding, and bending recommendations.
  • Strenx® 110XF arrives dual certified as EN 10149-2 S700MC with the option as ASTM A1011 or A1018 Grade 100 to allow for greater design flexibility with special request and additional lead time. 
  • Both Strenx® 100XF and Strenx® 110XF can be hot dip galvanized (HDG). 
  • Yield strength, tensile strength and elongation for Strenx® 110 XF are tested in both directions. 

All in all, this innovative high-strength steel offers superior strength-to-weight ratios, making it perfect for a variety of applications, including agriculture, transportation and construction. Interested in learning more about Strenx® 110 XF? Check out the technical data sheet here
