Using high-performance materials can benefit the upstream and downstream of the construction chain. These materials bring design freedom and lower consumption of raw material, helping civil construction to achieve safer, more efficient, and more sustainable urban infrastructure, which is a succeeded solution for the construction industry to meet the dematerialization process.
When added to the steel, Niobium can enhance mechanical properties like toughness, strength and weldability. Due to its increasing in performance, Niobium high-strength steels has been widely used in civil construction such as in the structure of buildings to help solve complex engineering problems, providing economy and cost-efficiency, making projects bolder and more modern.
Watch the video series below to learn how Niobium-bearing high strength steels and other high-performance materials can meet dematerialization, and help civil construction to achieve better infrastructure to
the urban environments.
