New uddeholmstrip steel grade with enhanced properties

For the compressor industry, reliability is one of the most important features of a compressor. As a component, the flapper valve plays a crucial part in influencing the life time by accommodating the constant movement. The fatigue life of Flap-X is improved significantly compared to the already great standard material UHB SS716, used for decades as a reference all over the world. With figures such as: 30% higher bending fatigue and 60% more cycles of impact fatigue, Flap-X is a material suitable for products with extremely high requirements.

When the goal is to provide a product with outstanding reliability whilst maintaining efficiency over time, Flap-X should be the natural choice. Flap-X is ready for orders and anyone who would like a trial order of the new material is welcome to contact our responsible sales person <This e-mail address is protected against spam bots, you have to activate JavaScript in your browser to see it.>.
