LOW ALLOY STEEL.
Low alloy steels processed by Sidastico are especially high performing.
Low alloy steels are special steels with high resistance to stress for cold forming and bending.
Thanks to its high chemical purity and fine-grained microstructure, low alloy steel has good resistance to fatigue, high tenacity, excellent welding quality and high resistance to stress that when cold processing steel results in better performance in respect to structural steel (also known as construction steel).
Therefore, low alloy steel simultaneously satisfies two requirements: good cold deformability and higher mechanical characteristics in respect to traditional molding steels, thanks to the addition of micro-alloy elements like niobium and vanadium.
Uses of low alloy steels
Chasses and molded parts for vehicles, trucks and trailers, industrial scaffolding, agricultural equipment, piping, etc.
