altrix®

Strong combination

altrix® multi-layer plates are composite materials and are manufactured as two- or three-layer plates by means of a roll-clad method developed in-house. The base material guarantees high toughness and good weldability. The cladding material offers a high degree of hardness and wear resistance in hardened condition.

Areas of application

Typical applications of altrix® multi-layer plates include dredging pipes, plow moldboards, mill housing wear plates, mold manufacturing, paddles in log washers, chutes, slides and transfer components in the sand, gravel and cement-making industries and cladding in rock crushers.

Materials

The standard base material of altrix® multi-layer plates is S235 in accordance with EN 10025-2. The cladding material is 2842 (altrix 90). A hardness value of up to 66 HRC is achievable in hardened condition. altrix® plates are delivered in as-rolled condition.

Dimensions

  • Plate thickness: 7–80 mm 
  • Plate width: 3.800 mm max.
  • Plate length: 12.000 mm max.
  • Ordered weight: At least 10 tons per line item
  • Unit weight: 6.3 tons max. per single plate
In consideration of the favoured wear resistance and resistance to fracture the correct layer thicknesses shall be selected. A layer thickness ratio of 50 % to 50 % is typical between the cladding and base material for two layers and 33-34-33 % (hard-tough-hard) for three-layer plates.

Advantages of altrix® 

  • Longer service life due to high degree of hardness 
  • High resistance to fracture in the compound blank 
  • Smooth surface, good yielding behavior and minimal caking 
  • Best welding properties in delivered condition and in hardened condition

Jack-up-Rig

Chords

High-strength heavy plates are found in offshore platform applications. We use a special tool in the head press shop to hot-form parts used in offshore platforms.

Support and anchoring system

Offshore platforms are supported by adjustable feet. During ocean transport, the feet are retracted and point upwards. At the designated location, the stands are extended until they reach the sea floor. Chords made by voestalpine Grobblech strengthen the gear racks of the feet and allow safe operation in rough conditions.

Complex manufacturing process

We developed our manufacturing technology for chords as hot-formed parts in our in-house press shop. The pre-material is heavy plate of high-strength fine-grained structural steel from our own rolling mill. Strips are cut from this plate and formed into chords with a special tool on a hydraulic press with a maximum pressing force of 3,500 tons. The tool function is based on finite-element calculations and guarantees a high degree of accuracy to shape. After being hot-formed, the chords are water-quenched and straightened. The edges are flame-cut and milled on both the side and end faces.

High-strength plates

High-strength plates made of fine-grained steel have a minimum yield strength of 620 and 700 MPa, and ultra-high-strength special grades achieve yield strengths of up to 1100 MPa.

Higher stresses

Machines and buildings are becoming ever larger. When you double the values of length, width and height of a component, the weight grows by a factor of 8, while the supporting cross-sectional area only grows by a factor of 4. This doubles the stress, which is calculated with the weight divided by the cross-sectional area. High-strength steels are capable of supporting these higher stresses and simultaneously lead to decreased weight of the component.

Specific advantages

The low weight of high-strength and ultra-high-strength heavy plates saves costs: The pre-material expenses, transport charges, and the assembly and foundation costs drop drastically. Add to that the costs saved during further processing of the material. Thanks to the excellent welding properties, work can proceed quickly and efficiently. On top of this, much less filler metal is required, and the weld seam test is simplified.

Our portfolio

We deliver high-strength heavy plates as fine-grained steels with a minimum yield strength of 620 and 700 MPa and ultra-high-strength heavy plates with a minimum yield strength of 900, 960 and 1100 MPa as special voestalpine grades.

LNG-Tanks

Nickel plates

We supply high-quality nickel plates in extra wide and thin dimensions for the storage and transport of LNG and LPG.

LNG

Natural gas is liquefied at the extremely low temperature of -164 °C, shrinking its volume by a factor of 600. This makes its storage and transport possible and economically efficient. At these very low temperatures, the utilization of special 9 % nickel steels is necessary in order to guarantee sufficient toughness and resistance to brittle cracking. We supply extra wide plates to this market segment, even with a thickness of 5 mm.

LPG

The LPG process is used to produce propane and process gases from natural gas. These gases are liquefied at room temperature at low pressure and are stored in special tanks made of 5 % nickel steels. We supply shell plates and vessel heads from a single source.

Highest quality for the highest degree of safety

The basis of our high-quality nickel plates are high-purity slabs from our own steelmaking plant. The very low carbon content guarantees perfect weldability. Further advantages are found in the product's excellent impact strength and the fracture-mechanical properties (CTOD). The entire plate surface undergoes ultrasonic testing. The residual magnetism is below 50 gauss.

Preprocessing to meet specific customer requirements

  • Shot-blasted or shot-blasted and primed
  • Weld edge preparation: Minimal hardening of the flame-cut edge is a result of the low carbon content.
  • Plate bending

Clad plates

Roll-bonded clad plates are the economic alternative to expensive high-alloy and non-clad plates. The mechanical properties of the base material are optimally combined with the corrosion resistance of the cladding material.

Our roll-bonded clad plates and heads are found in chemical equipment applications and refineries, in the oil and gas industry, coke drums and the food industry. Clad plates are also used in seawater desalination and flue gas desulfurization plants.

Materials

Clad plates consist of a base and a cladding material.

The base materials for our clad plates are produced exclusively in our own steelmaking plant in Linz. Cladding materials are purchased in the form of slabs and sheets from renowned manufacturers.

The base materials are predominantly made of structural steels, steels for boilers and pressure vessels and fine-grained structural steels, all of which are characterized by good weldability and formability.

Cladding materials are made of ferritic and austenitic stainless steels, nickel and nickel-based alloys, copper and copper-nickel alloys, all of which have excellent anti-corrosive properties.

Further material details are contained in the brochure that you can open below.

The base material surfaces are generally delivered in as-rolled or shot-blasted condition.

In almost all instances, the surface of the cladding material is polished. Our standard polish is 80 grain. Other grain sizes are available upon request.

Here you will find more information about delivery conditions and certifications for clad plates.

Clad linepipe plates

We are the world's largest producer of roll-bonded clad linepipe plates. The highest sour-gas requirements are met by our roll-bonded clad linepipe plates with corrosion-resistant cladding.

Sour-gas-resistant linepipe plates

The sour gases occurring in the linepipes used for the transport of oil and gas are highly corrosive. Only the highest-quality materials are capable of withstanding this aggressive medium. As a leading provider of sour-gas-resistant linepipe plates worldwide, we supply linepipes with corrosion-resistant cladding for specific applications.

Protective cladding material

The base material is decisive in the production of linepipes. Our roll-bonded clad plates are extremely strong, tough and resistant to corrosion as a result of their cladding material. Materials such as our X65 product with nickel-based alloy 625 provide the optimum physical properties. Our pipe partners process these materials into metallurgically bonded clad linepipes.

Elements of the highest quality

The metallurgical bonding of the clad linepipes withstands the highest mechanical stress and dynamic loads, making the pipes especially suited to deep-sea applications under highly corrosive conditions.

Reeling and riser pipes 

  • Roll-bonded clad plates for pipelines 
  • High degree of corrosion resistance, even in sour-gas applications 
  • More efficient and cost-effective reeling of pipelines than with on-board welding
