Weldox steels have excellent welding properties and the workpiece preheating requirements are moderate. This is mainly due to the low content of alloying elements and the low carbon content. In Weldox plate, high strength is therefore combined with high toughness and good weldability.
The chemical composition
of Weldox steels is very similar to that of ordinary structural steels,
which makes these materials compatible for welding to each other.
The weight savers and the cost cutters
By using Weldox steels in welded structures, the loadbearing capacity can be increased, while production costs can be cut due to the reduced plate weight and the lower material costs.
A reduction in the plate thickness cuts the welded joint volume, thereby reducing the quantity of filler metal and the welding time.
Moreover, by using thinner
plate, the preheating requirement can be reduced, which lowers the cost
