S960QL

Grade 960QL is a high strength structural steel in the quenched and tempered condition which gives the material excellent strength and abrasion resistance.
S890QL is a water quenched & tempered steel which complies with the EN10025:6:2004 specification. Due to the nature of the material it is used extensively in the heavy transport, lifting and mining industry, where huge payloads and risk of material deterioration through excessive abrasion is commonplace.
Produced in accordance with EN10025:6:2004, S890QL has good bending and welding capabilities.
Please refer to the technical details below referring to S890QL.
