Tough and Weldable Steel

"Better bend than break."

Scottish Proverb

In an ideal world you would not need to compromise – bend or break.

But, by increasing the strength of your HSLA steel products, you are often faced the dilemma of sacrificing other important properties, such as weldability, toughness and ductility.

We want to help you minimise these compromises, and  “have your cake and eat it”.

High strength vanadium microalloyed steels often feature low carbon levels, and thereby minimise any negative effects of increased strength in terms of other essential properties.

These vanadium strenghthened steels are ductile, tough and weldable.

And, they also possess excellent low and high cycle fatigue strength.
