Tough and Weldable Steel

Vanadium microalloyed steels, are not only strong, but also tough and weldable - you can have it all. By reducing alloy content, especially carbon, you are able to maintain high levels of toughness in the base steel, and also in the HAZ of welded joints. Learn how vanadium lets you have strength without compromise.

Any Carbon Level

Vanadium microalloying is beneficial at all carbon levels, from less than 0.1%C to more than 1%C. Predictable and consistent strengthening allows you flexibility to exploit vanadium in all your steel products. There are many successful applications of vanadium, from low carbon weldable plate and high strength rebar, through medium carbon forgings and high carbon steel rails. Learn why you don't need to worry about carbon content when using vanadium.

Exploits Nitrogen

Vanadium steel makes a virtue of nitrogen to enhance strength even further. Whether deliberately added, or present as a residual, you can be assured that nitrogen will make the most of vanadium. Vanadium carbonitride precipitation is most effective at stoichiometric levels of V and N, and therefore more nitrogen makes absolute sense. Find out more about how you can use less vanadium by exploiting nitrogen.

Ease of Processing

Vanadium is so easy to use in all your steel products, so you'll hardly notice it's there. During essential steelmaking and processing operations, such as casting, rolling and forging, vanadium remains dissolved in austenite. This allows you to process your steel products as if they contained no microalloying additions, thereby saving time, energy and money. Explore how you can benefit from the ease of use of vanadium microalloying.
