Strenx — The high-strength, high-performance steel


In the constant battle for higher-performing steel products, strong and thin win. You need stronger steel in thinner dimensions to make products stronger yet lighter and more sustainable. That’s why we developed Strenx™, our extensive portfolio of high-strength, high-performance structural steels.

Strenx has one of the world's most extensive product programmes, both in terms of dimensions available, and with yield strengths ranging from 600 to 1300 MPa. Strenx can produce outstanding results in the hands of ambitious designers who can cut 20 to 30 percent or even more weight off steel structures. Strenx helps your products — and your business — reach new levels of performance.

How to design with advanced high-strength steel for stronger, lighter and safer steel solutions.

Think smart, and think ahead

Because plates made from advanced high-strength steel (AHSS) are less thick but subjected to higher stress levels than conventional steels, the use of this steel places an increased focus on design. The design can literally make — or break — the potential of a long-lasting product.

Modern technology makes it possible to develop new products in a shorter time. Computer-based tools have speeded the process from concept to finished product. Still, all simulations must be verified using the appropriate methods to ensure correct results.

Particularly important points to consider when using AHSS include:

  • Structural design
  • Choice of material
  • Manufacturing methods
  • Welding and other workshop techniques
