Are you looking for steel that is up for any challenge? Look no further than Strenx® Performance Steel. This innovative steel offers superior strength-to-weight ratios, making it perfect for a variety of applications, including agriculture, transportation and construction. Plus, because it is made from 100 percent recycled materials, Strenx® steel helps you do your part to reduce environmental impact.
What is Strenx® Performance Steel?
Strenx® Performance Steel is a thermostatically-rolled sheet, 100 percent iron ore-based product with a minimum yield strength of 100 ksi. Its consistent properties ensure precision and efficiency in the workshop.
This high-strength structural steel is ideal in applications where its strength and excellent cold forming characteristics can reduce overall production costs. It is also optimal in applications where improved strength and weight reduction is desired due to its higher yield strength over normally used 50ksi minimum yield strength grades. Plus, Strenx® features superior flatness making it exceptional for laser and plasma burning applications.
