Going from strength to strength

Amstrong® range extended to offer widest dimensional feasibility on the market

Amstrong® is a family of advanced high strength steels (AHSS) from ArcelorMittal which offer high tensile strength, fatigue resistance, and excellent formability. The name Amstrong® is used for grades with tensile strengths below 650 MPa, while Amstrong® Ultra is the name for grades above 650 MPa.

Production investments will improve surface quality and flatness and reduce internal stresses for trouble-free laser cutting

The high strength of Amstrong® Ultra allows OEMs to create equipment with higher payloads, better reach, and better durability

ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products has recently expanded the dimensional feasibility of the Amstrong® family to ensure we offer the widest range on the market. ArcelorMittal has also invested in new equipment which will enhance the mechanical and surface properties of our Amstrong® and Relia® brands.

Amstrong® now comes in standard thicknesses from 1.5 to 25 mm and widths of up to 2150 mm,” notes Jan de Moor, Marketing manager for heavy machinery at ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products. “ Amstrong® Ultra 700 is now available in thicknesses from 4 to 20 mm, and widths up to 2000 mm.”

The Amstrong® family offers customers the option of lightening their products using a higher strength grade in a lower thickness. By lightweighting their products in this way, customers reduce the amount of steel required and the carbon intensity of their products. ArcelorMittal can provide co-engineering support to help customers optimise the design of applications which use the Amstrong® family.

In 2023, ArcelorMittal will commercialise higher strength grades in the Amstrong® Ultra range

New products in the Amstrong® range include:

Product New thicknesses available
Amstrong® 355 to S420 From 3 to 25 mm (width up to 2000 mm)
Heavy gauge pickled Amstrong® 355 to S420 Up to 15 mm (width 1500 mm)
Amstrong® Ultra 700 Now available in 4, 5, and 6 mm in widths up to 2000 mm
Heavy gauge pickled Amstrong® Ultra 700 Available up to 10 mm x 1500 mm
Amstrong® Ultra 900 and S960 From 3 to 8 mm in widths up to 1500 mm (3 mm in development)

The standard black Amstrong® range is also now available with Clean Surface. This guarantees a cleaner surface and is ideal for applications where surface quality is important.
