Ultra High Strength Steels are commonly available in
Sheets and Plates
Tubes and Pipes
(Not all alloys or tempers available in all shapes)
Minimum yield strength of 1380 MPa
Car body panels
Welding of Ultrahigh Strength Steels is generally completed via the GTAW process. For some grades, matching filler alloys are recommended.
Ultrahigh Strength Steels have average machinability, but forging is the preferred shape forming process.

The family of Ultrahigh Strength Steels is yet another created for a specific property, namely the highest strength and, more specifically in this case, those which have a minimum yield strength of 1380 MPa. The range of Ultrahigh Strength steels is diverse and broad in terms of composition and characteristics, so you will find the details on this page rather truncated, but please conduct further reading into Medium Carbon Low Alloy Steel, Medium Alloy Air Hardening Steel, High Fracture Toughness Steel, TWIP, TRIP, Dual Phase and Maraging Steel for more information and guidance.
