Bainitic steel

The innovative bainitic, hot-rolled strip steels SZBS600 and SZBS800 belong to the group of multi-phase steels and are characterized by a unique microstructure architecture which results in a very homogeneous hardness distribution. This means fewer starting points for crack propagation than in conventional multi-phase steels.
