Cryogenic steels from Dillinger put you on the safe side for extremely low temperatures. They retain adequate Charpy V-notch toughness, and thus high resistance to brittle fracture, even in the temperature range down to -196° C. This makes them the perfect choice for gas-liquefaction plants, for example, and for the transportation and storage of liquefied gases, such as LNG and LPG.
A problem common to most steels is the fact that they become brittle, i.e. the toughness of the steel decreases, as temperature falls. This phenomenon occurs only to a reduced extent in cryogenic steels. Special alloying elements shift the steep loss of Charpy V-notch toughness under exposure to extreme cold to even lower temperature ranges.
Innovative top-quality steel products, total orientation around our customers' needs and unceasing technological development in close cooperation with our partners form the basis of our success - as they have for more than 330 years.
