Hardened and tempered steel strip with different microstructures
Hardening and tempering to achieve a high tensile strength
When it comes to materials that feature good hardness, homogeneity, elasticity and spring tension, hardened and tempered steel strip from Waelzholz is your go-to product. Martensitic steel strip, bainitic steel strip and SORBITEX® textured steel strip feature different microstructures and are suited to a wide range of high-stress applications.
Precisely tailored microstructures
In multiple production steps of cold rolling and heat treatment, which include a specific temperature progression depending on the phase transformations, we produce the martensitic, bainitic or sorbitic microstructures in a material (refer to the graphic below). With our expertise we can achieve the exact properties that our customers desire.
Temperature progression and phase transformation
Precise temperature progression depending on the phase transformations, to produce the martensitic, bainitic or sobritic microstructure.
