Improved Impact Strength for Extreme Conditions - new Ruukki Optim 700 QL1 High-Strength Steel

Improved Impact Strength for Extreme Conditions - new Ruukki Optim 700 QL1 High-Strength SteelRuukki's Optim portfolio of high-strength structural steels has been expanded with yet another new Optim grade. The new Optim 700 QL1 is a structural steel with improved impact strength properties. The impact strength of Optim 700 QL1 has been tested at a temperature of -60 degrees Celsius, making it ideal for use in very demanding conditions and at sub-zero temperatures. Applications include cranes, load-bearing structures as well as frame structures and components of heavy machinery.

"The strength and impact toughness of Optim 700 QL1 structural steel ensures the load-bearing capacity of even the most demanding lifting equipment and meets the applicable safety criteria also at low temperatures," says Tony Harris, vice president, sales Western Europe & Africa at Ruukki.

Ruukki is a leader in the development of high-strength special steels and has been manufacturing Optim high-strength steels since 2002. Ruukki's manufacturing program includes the thinnest ultra-high-strength structural steels on the market. The new Optim 700 QL1 steel complies with the EN 10025-6+A1 standard. The steel is available in a thickness range of 6.00 - 60.00 mm. Processing of Optim steels is easy thanks to good formability, bendability and weldability.

Ruukki also provides local technical and application support to help customers to get the most out of using special steels. Prompt and reliable deliveries are guaranteed by an extensive distribution and dealer network across some 30 countries.
