Choosing the correct grade of steel can extend the lifespan of machinery, decrease wear in structural components and ultimately save costs.
Our renowned hard and tough steel is abrasion-resistant making it suitable for the most aggressive environments.
Its unique qualities and can even perform as a load-bearing part in many applications which opens new possibilities for structural design application. Advantages include better wear resistance, higher payload and longer service life.
ASF’s superior quality, reliability and performance keeps your business up and running and more efficient. Our aim is to help your business increase production efficiency, cut material waste and improve end-product quality.
