Ovako_SZ-Steel_2_High-res.jpgOVAKO says as companies push the limits of performance in cold climates and harsh environments, demand for strong, safe and well-proven materials is on the rise. Components like pipeline bolts, hydraulic parts and offshore lifting devices must offer greater reliability at sub-zero temperatures.

Designed specifically for use in sub-zero applications, SZ-Steel offers high impact strength at extreme cold temperatures of -40°C and below, and is reportedly proven at temperatures down to -101C. Ovako says it was awarded the Spotlight on Arctic Technology Award at OTC's Arctic Technology Conference earlier this year, recognising innovative new products that have significantly impacted Arctic exploration and production.

SZ-Steel, which stands for sub-zero, is a family of steel grades with low impurity levels and controlled grain size that are specifically developed for use in extreme environments.
