Grades & Sizes

From standard to premium grades

We offer a wide range of steel grades, from standard to premium. Standard grades are mainly seen In  civil structural applications whereas grades like FineXcell®, Avadur® and Durascilt® are used in high demanding military applications. 

About FineXcell®

When highest strength meets weldability – Our FineXcell® grade series maximizes performance and reduces weight. These fine-grain structural steels offer yield strengths up to an impressive 1,000 MPa plus, excellent processing and welding characteristics. They provide an optimum in combination of high yield strength and ability to customize.
