Innovations 2020

A special grade

In 2020, we launched a new super-austenitic grade, Sanicro® 35, with high strength and extreme corrosion properties, making it suitable for a broad range of applications. Designed for highly corrosive environments, it bridges the gap between standard duplex or austenitic grades and nickel alloys.

New medical application for pathology

A more stable and sharper edge convinced a customer to change to the martensitic stainless grade 13c26. The change resulted in higher productivity and improved quality.

Many industrial processes are rapidly being electrified. In this transition, our Kanthal division offers clean, safe, silent and controllable heating solutions that maximize energy efficiency and productivity for all industries with a heating process. One example is the steel industry which aims to minimize its carbon footprint by replacing fossil fuel with sustainable alternatives.
