Over the years we have gained a good reputation for products suitable for applications when fatigue strength, toughness and wear resistance are critical. As well as meeting specified requirements, our bar products offer good formability, machinability and weldability, making them a cost-saving solution. Our hot-rolled bars can be further processed by heat treatment and chrome plating.

Our hot-rolled bars are characterised by close tolerances and excellent straightness. In addition, roundness, good surfaces and low decarburization makes our bars ideally suited for forging and machining.

A major part of our round bars is supplied as peeled, ground or drawn bright bars. The Ovako hot-rolled bar offering also contains round bars, flat bars, round corner squared bars, special properties bars, special profiles and precomponents plus our SR-100 Wire and the Cromax product family. All available in a variety of sizes.

Reducing global CO2 emissions demands smarter product solutions and requires rethinking on many levels: more performance benefits per kilogram of product, less raw materials, and substituting fossil fuel energy sources with primarily fossil-free electricity.

We made it! But we are still not satisfied

What a journey! It took years of hard work to make our steelmaking operations more sustainable. In 2022, we went carbon neutral in all operations. But we´re still not satisfied - our journey continue for products with no CO2 emissions.
