Abramax® are were resistant steels with special heat resistance and corrosive environment resistance. They are delivered in quenched and tempered condition which gives them hardness of about 400 and 500 HBW and workshop friendly properties. Abramax® steels will provide increased service life in comparison to conventional steels, especially when exposed to elevated temperatures.
Abramax® gives improved processing possibilities. It comes with excellent cold forming, machining and welding properties. Its quenched and tempered microstructure provides full repeatability of forming with tight bending radii as well as a narrow and hard heat affected zone after thermal cutting and welding.
Typical application markets for Abramax® are: energy, mining, quarries, recycling, yellow goods and elevated temperature industries.
