Count on the optimum material for each and every application
Special tasks demand special solutions. We provide a broad range of special sheets and plates. The applications of our sheets and plates may vary, but they have one thing in common: they are all customized solutions for heaviest duties.
High Performance Plates
Our sheets and plates are primarily used for fittings, flanges, heat exchangers, or welded pipes for offshore applications. Our range of products includes seawater-resistant super duplex and super austenitic steels, as well as nickel and nickel-based alloys for the highest corrosion resistance. By using our particular cross rolling technology, we ensure the homogeneous isotropic material properties of our sheets and plates are achieved. Our special sheets and plates are available from a thickness of 2 mm, both in standard formats and in customized sizes.
Clad Line Pipe Plates
Manufacturing top quality clad line pipe plates is one of our specialties; we are the biggest manufacturer worldwide in this segment. The fortes of our roll-bonded clad plates with corrosion-resistant cladding are high strength with good toughness, and they have the best corrosion protection features. Special materials such as our X65 product with the nickel-based alloy 625 ensure these optimum physical properties. With the help of our partners, our clad plates are processed into metallurgically bonded clad line pipes.
Line Pipe Plates
We are a pioneer in the development of thermomechanical rolling processes, and we are among the world market leaders in the field of sour gas-resistant line pipe plates. Whether used for a pipeline 2,800 m below sea level, or for a non-land pipeline of up to 48“ (1,220 mm) in diameter, our line pipe plates provide for safe and reliable transportation.
Offshore structural plates
Our offshore structural plates are in a class of their own, especially when applied in cold conditions. They are characterized by extremely good toughness that can withstand arctic temperatures, and their weldability is setting industry standards. Our offshore structural plates have a variety of applications and can be used as an element in oil rigs, as a foundation for offshore wind parks, or as a part in FPSOs (Floating Production Storage and Offloading Units).
Chords reinforce the gear racks of the feet of offshore platforms. We provide the optimum solution for this application by offering high strength, hot-formed elements that are produced by means of a manufacturing process specifically developed by our team at voestalpine.
We are an industry leader in LNG and LPG storage solutions, and we have an extensive portfolio to ensure we can meet all of our customers’needs. Featuring proven weldability and resistance to low temperatures, our 9% nickel steels are the proper solution for LNG storage. For this application, we offer extra wide plates, even with a thickness of 5 mm. Moreover, with our 5%nickel steel plates we are also the specialist for LPG storage and transportation. We supply shell plates and heads from one single source.
Pressure vessel plates
We are the world‘s only manufacturer to deliver shell plates, heads, and cones in plain-carbon steel – roll-clad on demand – from one single source. Our customers benefit from coordinated solutions of optimum processing. By using our high-strength CrMo und CrMoV steels we are able to reduce the wall thicknesses of pressure vessels.
Tough to the core
Our new generation of thermomechanically rolled (TMCP) toughcore® heavy plates are characterized by their excellent toughness at extremely low temperatures, even to the core. This steel is manufactured in a completely new and patented process that enables unique combinations of properties with respect to thickness, strength, excellent toughness and best weldability. This new technology provides higher levels of safety, allows for exploration of extreme regions,and ensures cost savings for our customers. Read more at our special toughcore®-site.
