ABREX™ Toughness Made in Japan.The absolute champion of abrasion resistant steel.

Characteristics by Category

Ships

Steel plate for shipbuilding supports the world's marine transport with cutting edge technology.

Due to the increase in the seaborne trade volume, shipbuilders are constructing larger ships in search of greater efficiency. Also, environmental regulations have become stricter due to an increased awareness of safety and environmental issues concerning marine transport.

NSSMC can meet these needs for larger ships and help correspond to stricter regulations with our product lineup; high-strength arrest steel for mega-container ships, our corrosion resistant NSGPTM series for oil tankers, and our NSafeTM-Hull series with outstanding collision safety.

Construction and industrial machinery

ABREXTM- abrasion resistant steel plate for high durability needs

As mining development and urban development continues on a global scale, the need for high durability parts is increasing in the machinery industry.
ABREXTM, NSSMC's abrasion resistant steel plate series, assures weldability, a wide lineup of specifications and sizes, the world's highest level of hardness and low temperature toughness (five times harder than mild steel). NSSMC can also provide full technological support.
ABREXTM is widely used for shovels, crushers, and dump trucks that operate in severe environments.

Construction and building

Strong and user-friendly steel plate for constructions and building structures.

As newly constructed building structures continue to follow the trend of varticalization and upsizing, the need for steel plate with improved earthquake resistance as well as user-friendliness is increasing. Using our proprietary technology, NSSMC provides products with high strength, toughness, and workability. With our lineup, we satisfy a broad range of customer needs such as safety improvement, shortening construction periods and extending service life.

Bridges

We support people's lives with the technology creating strong and tough bridges.

Bridges are essential infrastructures that support people's lives. Therefore, bridges must be economical, safe, and durable both under construction and management afterwards. NSSMC develops products with high strength and corrosion resistance, and proposes diverse solutions using our world class technical capabilities. We can meet customer needs such as shortening construction periods, improving the work environment, and extending service life.

Power plants

Steel plates for tanks and pressure vessels that meet the need for stable energy supply and resource savings.

Tanks and pressure vessels are used under severe conditions from the refining process to the power storage process. Steel plates used for such structures are required to have high strength and toughness under severe temperature conditions.
NSSMC can meet these needs with our proprietary technology and contribute to resource conservation and reducing environmental burdens by proposing various advanced steel products and solutions.

Offshore structures

Steel plates for offshore structures, the pioneers in the deep seas

As the mining environment for subsea resources becomes more severe, the needs for steel plate with high strength and toughness under low temperatures have increased.
NSSMC can contribute to the solution of customer issues with a wide range of steel products with high strength and toughness used for the development of the offshore energy resources, especially in the great depths over 1000m or in the North Sea and Arctic zones.
