The benefits for product specific design properties for branded steel are obvious: Not only the development of a steel grade for a specific area of application will become apparent, but also the cost-efficiency is a significant factor.
Whereas the normal flat product meets the applicable norm, our branded steels are developed strictly according to the product specific specifications. To master such challenges require well qualified metallurgists, who we have in our staff. A product example: the RBoffshore 355, a high strength quenched and tempered fine grained structural steel is used predominantly in offshore applications. Due to a low carbon equivalent it is especially well-suited for big thicknesses – with excellent toughness properties. In addition to that RBoffshore 355 has outstanding welding and flame-cutting characteristics.
