Domex is the brand name of hot-rolled sheet steel from SSAB. This high-strength steel is a low-alloy, cold-formed steel intended for use in the automotive and engineering industries. The entire range extends from Domex MC cold-forming steels to wear resistant or corrosion resistant steels, as well as ballistic protection sheet steel and electrical sheet steel.

This high-strength steel has excellent formability, and good weldability meaning it can undergo various manufacturing processes. Due to our extensive capacity in cutting, pressing, machining and fabrication, this can all be undertaken within our 300,000 sq. ft. facility.

By using Domex instead of mild steel, you get a stronger and higher quality product. In which you require less steel, less welding and will lower the weight of your structure, this will also reduce the production cost. Based on previous projects at MTL we have the capability to reduce the manufacturing costs and weight by up to 30%. This is particularly advantageous for use in the automotive industry, where designers aim to keep structural weight low but strength handling levels high.

Using Domex is an investment due to its high quality, high durability and higher strength in comparison to alternatives. It is less susceptible to damage, saving money long term on repair and replacement costs.

In 2015 700MC Domex rebranded as Strenx – To find out more about our Strenx capabilities, click here.
