Optim 550 W weather resistant structural steels
Advanced weather resistant high strength steel
The weather resistant Optim 550 W steel grade is a structural steel, offering high strength and good weather resistance. This structural steel has excellent weldability, bendability and cutting properties. Its surface quality, dimensional accuracy and the consistency of its properties are among the best on the market.
The figure “550” in the designation refers to the minimum yield strength in MPa. The letter “W” means weather resistant steel.
Optim 550 W brings clear performance benefits for steel structures, vehicles and lifting equipment. It helps to achieve lighter steel structures, higher payloads and lower energy consumption for:
- Agricultural machinery
- Transportation safety
