It is quite normal that steel specifications allow for large variations in component performance. For many customers with a need for improved performance of a system, the first step is to define the performance baseline of the present material in use. And then to apply more stringent specifications. Ovako can provide a comprehensive material analysis for establishing cleanness levels of steels. This has been developed to support a shorter lead time for components and system development projects. Depending on complexity, result reports from the analysis can be delivered within a few weeks. The analysis will indicate present material performance level and include recommendations on material selection for desired new performance level. Emergency cases can also be handled, where unexpected failure modes can be examined within a few days to support root cause analysis. Lead time for emergency cases may vary depending on capacity in the laboratory. For further information, please contact us on to:


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.
