Developed by thyssenkrupp Steel Europe more than 50 years ago, quenched and tempered special structural steels have proved ideal for reducing the deadweight of highly stressed steel structures.
Various grades are available in minimum yield strengths up to 188 ksi and plate thicknesses from 1/8” to 4”.
N-A-XTRA® and XABO® grades can also be supplied as cut-to-length plates in thicknesses up to approx. 3/8”. Due to their very close thickness tolerances of ±0.008” they offer weight reduction benefits as well as advantages in terms of cold forming.
- Minimum yield strengths up to 188 ksi
- Optimum strength/toughness combination
- Very close thickness tolerances ±0.008”
- Outstanding mechanical properties
- Very good flatness
- High surface quality
High-strength quenched and tempered special structural steels for the constructions subjected to heavy loads or weathering fine grain structural steel with special corrosion properties: Heavy plate made from special structural steel makes steel structures not only lighter and longer-lasting but also more cost-efficient.
Further structural steel grades
N-A-XTRA® / XABO® in use
In many structures, the use of high-strength special structural steels N-A-XTRA® and XABO® permits a reduction in plate thickness and therefore a reduction in material and processing costs as well as operating costs. Weight reduction is an increasingly important issue in truck and mobile crane construction, where the dimensions and axle loads of the vehicle and the overall weight of the structure are restricted by law.
The wide range of N-A-XTRA® and XABO® steels allows designers to choose the optimum grade for a particular application taking loading and production conditions into account.
N-A-XTRA® and XABO® steels have found a broad range of applications in many important areas of engineering.
More environmental protection, more safety and cost efficiency are important issues in the automotive industry. As a long-standing partner, thyssenkrupp Steel Europe understands these requirements and provides comprehensive industry-specific expertise with regard to material as well as technology.
Cranes, civil protection vehicles or ships – special-purpose vehicles are used wherever demanding tasks must be performed. thyssenkrupp Steel Europe provides high-performance solutions for the respective field of application setting new standards on the market.
