Hot rolled hardenable boron steels

Hardenable boron steel

Hot rolled boron steels have been developed to be hardened, either by heat treatment after workshop processing, or by a direct hot forming & quenching process to get their final properties. Boron steel is a perfect base material for a great variety of products, parts and components, that need extreme hardness, wear resistance, high strength, toughness and resistance to mechanical load. These boron steel properties after heat treatment ensure longer lifetime and considerable weight reduction. Good forming- bending- welding- and cutting properties enable the manufacturing of complicated structures, components and parts.

 

Hot rolled boron steels are delivered in hot rolled (as-rolled) condition as coil, slit coil, cut to length sheet, wide flats, heavy plate and parts.

 

Boron steels are also available in the form of cold rolled coil, slit coil, cut to length sheet, structural hollow sections, precision tubes and roll-formed profiles.
