As a hot-rolled bar with enhanced properties, Special Properties bar by Ovako is not limited to any specific grade and therefore offers increased added value and substantial cost savings due to the SP-Bar treatment‘s effect on mechanical properties. By optimizing the properties of the bar material, customers can benefit from increased added value and substantial cost savings in manufacturing operations.
Size range: 14 to 52 mm
Lengths: 4 to 12 m
SP-Bars offers improved mechanical properties compared to regular bars. The result is a longer fatigue life and a greater impact strength.
SP-Bars offer extremely tight tolerances. Consequently SP-Bars can often replace peeled or drawn bars. Customers can decrease the nominal size and get more manufactured pieces per tonne of purchased SP-Bars.
Scale thickness is generally reduced on SP-Bars. The reduction can be up to 50 % compared to conventionally hot-rolled products. The reduced scale thickness gives a cleaner environment in subsequent operations such as cold-forming or heat treatment.
