Our customer offering
Our wide range of tubular products in corrosion-resistant alloys contributes to more efficient and reliable industrial processes. Our super-duplex stainless steel tubes for umbilicals have become the industry standard due to their corrosion resistance, reliability and ability to withstand extreme temperatures and pressures. We have delivered steam generator tubes to more than 100 nuclear reactors worldwide. Our Pressurfect® seamless stainless steel tubes, developed for high-pressure gasoline direct injection (GDI) engines, significantly reduce fuel consumption and consequently lower exhaust emissions. We are a market-leading supplier of titanium tubes for aircraft hydraulic systems and these robust, light and thin tubes help modern fleets reduce average per-passenger carbon footprint.
Electric heating technology products, marketed under the Kanthal® brand, are used primarily for generation, measurement and control of heat in industrial furnaces and home appliances. Electric heating is more energy efficient than fossil alternatives and provide a cleaner and safer work environment for employees. There is a growing demand for electric heating technology. For example, the transition to fossil-free production of steel is dependent on sustainable heating solutions. The transition towards electrical cars is driving the demand for lithium-ion batteries, in which the cathode material must be produced at high temperatures.
Our precision strip steels are used in applications such as compressors, and need to have an extreme fatigue strength. Our compressor valve steel reduces the energy consumption and carbon emissions in, for example, air conditioning. We also offer strip steel with functional coating for different types of fuel cells and in other applications for renewable energy production, such as solar panels.
The medical ultra-fine wire and wire-based components marketed under the Exera® brand are used in life-changing or even life-saving medical solutions. The wire is designed and formed to sense, stimulate or transmit signals inside or outside the human body. It is hence applicable in remote monitoring features that are increasingly in demand for future medical devices. Typical applications are pacemakers, continuous glucose monitors for diabetes care and deep brain stimulation.
