The production of the first industrial batch has begun
In January of 2022 the production of the first indusctrial scale batch of ApexUltra has begun. The total production process is estimated to take about 3 months. The steel will be remolten to achieve a higher purity and better homogenity in the steel as well as to refine the carbides. It will then be heat treated for about a week to reduce stresses, transported to the rolling mill where it will be pre-rolled into slabs and then hot rolled in the finishing line to the final dimensions.
We expect the first batch to arrive in our warehouse in Austria in the beginning of April.
