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.
Bars and billets
We provide an extensive range of stainless bar and hollow bar for machining. Our program also includes hollow drill steel for the manufacturing of top-hammer rock drill rods. Sanmac® is our family of machinability-improved stainless steels. Demanding customers are welcoming new Sanicro® 825 (Alloy 825) bar and hollow bar as a smart, cost-efficient solution. We also provide round and square billets and continuous cast blooms in a wide range of materials, such as stainless steels, duplex stainless steels and nickel alloys. The program also includes ingots and continuous cast billets.
Our electric heating technology products and materials, marketed under the Kanthal® brand, are used primarily for generation, measurement and control of heat in industrial furnaces and process heating systems as well as for home appliances. Electric heating is more energy efficient than fossil alternatives and emits no CO2 if renewable energy is used. It also provides a cleaner and safer work environment for employees. As energy intensive industries, such as steel, cement, battery and petrochemical – all dependent on high-temperature processes – are set to lower their CO2 emissions, the demand for electric heating technology is growing in order to achieve a completely fossil-free value chain.
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.
As a world-leading developer and manufacturer of high-value added precision strip steel, we offer an extensive range of advanced stainless-steel grades and special alloys. We supply materials for the most demanding applications for precision strip steel, for example to the medical sector, compressor industry and consumer products. With an average of more than 82 percent recycled steel in our material we help our customer with more sustainable end products such as scalpels, razor blades, knife steel and compressor valve steels. In 2021 we launched a new material for the compressor industry, enabling design of more energy-efficient compressors to further reduce CO2 emissions.
Coated strip steel
Sandvik Materials Technology has for several years invested in fuel cell materials research and development. We have a unique, large-scale production facility in Sandviken, Sweden, and offer a breakthrough technology for industrialized precoating of coil for fuel cells, avoiding the costly need for the coating of individual plates. Our production of coated strip uses an advanced, environmentally sound process with no discharge to water and air. A fuel cell is an energy converter that can be used to make electricity and heat from hydrogen and the energy conversion takes place without any combustion. The only emission is pure water.
