Engineering Steels

Engineering Steels

Engineering steels, or special bar quality (SBQ), is used to describe steel long products for more demanding processing or end-use applications than can be met by commodity grades. Products include bright bars, rolled carbon and alloy bars, forged, tool and stainless steels. These are generally machined, forged or cold drawn during subsequent processing.

The main application area is the automotive industry for engine, transmission, steering and suspension components, but engineering steels are also used for a wide range of industrial applications including hand tools, oil & gas exploration and wind turbine components.
