Maxima® rolls have been developed for mills which can benefit from improved performance compared to using Optima® in intermediate stands or as an alternative in finishing stands which are not suited to using high performance Ultima®. These grades have been enhanced by the addition of micro alloy elements including Boron and Niobium as a finely precipitated, discrete aggregate set of carbides within the matrix.

*The hardness adjustment is obtained during a complex heat treatment process. For production, we need a range of 5 ShC which needs to be specified in the roll order.
Our technical team can help to determine the most suitable grade, degree of hardness and manufacturing method to meet with individual mill conditions and specifications.
