SSAB's Toolox steel, which was initially developed for the casting of plastic parts, has also proved to have the characteristics required from extreme high-temperature environments, where material is exposed to great force and high wear. These high-temperature characteristics mean that, for example, a piece of machinery with a bucket manufactured in Toolox can now be used in such sectors as coal power plants, cement, and metal industries, where slag and other substances with very high temperatures are handled. Toolox, developed from the company’s Hardox steel, has gained entirely new characteristics in the production process. Forming steel sheet requires great force and energy, which in turn generates high temperatures in the forming tool. The same thing applies in the production process when brass and aluminum are melted and formed. SSAB’s Toolox steel is also suitable for these tough processes.
