The Duisburg mill is the heart of the company. Its location on the Rhine has been invaluable ever since the site was founded in 1891: Downstream processing operations are performed in Bochum, Dortmund, and the Siegerland area on state-of-the-art rolling and coating lines. Electrical Steel in Gelsenkirchen stands for high-quality grain-oriented electrical steel, while a second subsidiary in Andernach ranks among the world market leaders in tinplate. Steel not only operates in Germany but is also represented on the Chinese market through a joint venture producing premium-quality hot-dip coated steel for the auto industry.

Products

Steel Europe

Packaging steel

As a world leading manufacturer of packaging steel, thyssenkrupp produces tin-coated, chromium-coated and uncoated blackplate in thicknesses of 0.100 to 0.499 mm in its Rasselstein product range. Depending on customer requirements, the product Thinplate®, an even thinner high-end material but with the same properties, can additionally be painted or film-laminated. Our premium tinplate is used for example for the packaging of food, beverages, and chemical/technical products. Increasingly the material is also being employed in the construction, automobile and electronics sectors.

Sheet & coated products

thyssenkrupp offers a broad spectrum of cold-rolled sheet and coated products. Our coatings range from hot-dip galvanized and galvannealed to our ZM Ecoprotect® coating and our aluminum-based aluminum-silicon and galfan® products. In addition we offer electrogalvanized sheet and special finishes such as primetex®, the perfect basis for an outstanding paint finish.

Composite material

With TRIBOND®, thyssenkrupp's steel specialists combine different materials in a single product. Consisting of two or three layers produced by hot roll cladding, our composite materials offer properties which cannot be achieved with a conventional monolithic steel material. The vibration-damping composite BONDAL® comprises a viscoelastic polymer sandwiched between two steel face sheets for excellent structure-borne and air-borne sound insulation.

Hot strip

thyssenkrupp's hot-rolled portfolio extends from mild and structural steels to thermomechanically rolled high-strength PERFORM® grades for cold forming. Hot-rolled steel is available pickled and unpickled in a variety of dimensions. The wide range includes our premium product SCALUR®, pickled hot-rolled steel with very close thickness tolerances, sour gas-resistant pipeline steel, manganese-boron steels for hot forming, and dual phase steels for the manufacture of complex high-strength structural elements.

Precision steel strip

Manufactured to very close thickness tolerances, precision steel strip from thyssenkrupp achieves properties similar to cold-rolled steel. In addition it offers excellent surface quality, extremely uniform material properties, tailored microstructures, outstanding forming properties even in high-strength grades, and batch sizes matched to customer needs. This means our precision steel strip is perfect for direct processing as well as for further processing in the cold rolling mill.

Organic coated strip & sheet

thyssenkrupp is a leading manufacturer of organic-coated sheet. Attractive and functional coatings from our PLADUR® and Reflections® ranges open up great creative scope for the design of multistory and industrial buildings, facades and roofing. PLADUR® MetalLook finishes with anti-fingerprint properties are the preferred choice for the domestic appliance sector. Our coil-coated products offer premium quality, good formability and optimum corrosion protection.

Electrical steel

thyssenkrupp is a global market leader in high-tech electrical steel, a product used throughout the electricity value chain from generation to transmission, distribution and consumption. Our product range includes both semi-finished and fully finished grades. Innovative PowerCore® electrical steels offer extremely high efficiency. The grain-oriented version, produced by a sophisticated process to create its special grain structure, is used in transformers, while non-oriented electrical steel is employed in electric motors, appliances and generators.
