High-strength plates

Higher stress

Machines and buildings are becoming bigger and bigger. When the size of a component is doubled in length, width and height, the weight increases by a factor of 8, while the load-bearing cross-sectional surface area only increases by a factor of 4. This increases the stress, or the weight in relation to the cross-sectional surface area, by a factor of two. High-strength steels can absorb these higher stresses, even when the component weight is reduced.

Concrete advantages

The lower weight of high-strength and ultra-high-strength heavy plates saves costs: Input material quantities, transport costs, assembly and foundation costs are reduced substantially. Costs are also saved during further processing. Thanks to favorable weldability, work can be completed more quickly and efficiently. Significantly reduced quantities of welding consumables are required, and weld seam testing is made easier.

Our program

High-strength heavy plates are available as fine-grained steels with a minimum yield strength of 620 and 700 MPa. Ultra-high-strength heavy plates are available as voestalpine special grades at 900, 960 and 1100 MPa.

  • alform plate 620 M, thermomechanically rolled, high-strength fine-grained steels
  • alform plate 700 M, thermomechanically rolled, high-strength fine-grained steels
  • aldur 700, 900 and 960 Q, quenched and tempered, high-strength fine-grained steels
  • alform plate 900 M x-treme, thermomechanically rolled, ultra-high-strength fine-grained steels
  • alform plate 960 M x-treme, thermomechanically rolled, ultra-high-strength fine-grained steels
