Strip steel edges
Sandvik's strip steel can be delivered with a variety of edge finishes, to suit specific requirements. The choice of edge finish depends on the application; however, the availability of finishes is dependent on steel grade, size and tolerance. Here only standard profiles are shown, but other finishes are also available, such as bevelled edge.
