/INS. Ruukki, a leading manufacturer of wear-resistant Raex and high-strength Optim steels, will be exhibiting at the Tip-ex 2014 fair on 29 – 31 May 2014.  Use of Ruukki’s special steel products in customer applications translates into more value using less material. For the customer, this means lighter vehicle structures that save energy, reduce emissions and prolong life cycles in applications requiring wear-resistance.

Ruukki adds to its range of Raex wear-resistant steels for all applications requiring up to 80-mm thick heavy plate

Ruukki can now supply steels for all applications requiring wear-resistant special steels. Ruukki Raex special steel can withstand wear and surface pressure and the range has now been expanded to include the thicker wear-resistant steels needed, for example, in the mining industry. Raex special steel is made in a range of thicknesses from 2 mm to 80 mm.

The steel portfolio for the automotive industry comprises a range of high-strength grades. The sector’s present focus on fuel efficiency, light structures, and low material costs, however, requires the application of ultra-high-strength formable steels. To achieve the strength required, OEMs have relied on multiphase steels since the 1990s. Finnish steel-maker Ruukki was one of the first suppliers to invest in multiphase steel production and is a forerunner at the cutting edge in the development and production of hot-dip galvanised Dual Phase (DP) and Complex Phase (CP) steels, which the company markets under the brand name LITEC®.
