Discover how niobium can reduce alloying costs for 355 MPa grade structural flat products

The benefits of niobium microalloying design for structural applications

Lean Alloy Design: It is well established that niobium adds value to many steel products through improving the properties of the material and enhancing the performance of end products. Driven by the need to become increasingly cost-competitive, niobium can add considerable value to structural steel grades up to 355 MPa. It enables the design of leaner alloys, reducing the cost of production and without requiring any changes to the steelmaking or rolling mill processes.
