TruSTRENGTH

The strong silent type

CMC Impact Metals is a trusted leader in the heat-treated, high-strength performance steel market. Our TruSTRENGTH steel products are melted and manufactured in the U.S. and built on proven processes and superior, uncompromising quality.

Manufacturers are continuously looking to reduce weight while improving the performance of their products, without compromising performance integrity. TruSTRENGTH steel is the solution. Our highstrength steel provides the strength, weldability and durability to take your products to the next level in performance.

Quality and strength

The combination of TruSTRENGTH’s high-strength properties and a lighter weight than other steel products means your equipment can carry more payload while still withstanding the most stringent working conditions. Lighter equipment also leads to a lower fuel consumption and improved operating performance.

Formability and weldability

The refined chemical composition, along with the heat-treating, quench and tempering processes used to create TruSTRENGTH, creates a steel with the ductility that is necessary for ease of formability and fabrication in the downstream manufacturing process.

Manufacturers and fabricators can use many conventional, manual or automated welding processes when working with TruSTRENGTH products due to the steel’s advanced chemical composition and mechanical properties.

Melted and manufactured in the U.S., our high-strength flat bar, plate and structural products are delivered with uncompromising quality and expertise.
 

TruSTRENGTH - FLAT BAR

TruSTRENGTH flat bar is a mill-rolled product with a smooth edge that helps ensure uniformity, consistency and straightness. Available in grades ranging from 80 to 150 ksi, TruSTRENGTH’s flat bar has high-strength properties at a lighter weight which translates to cost savings for manufacturers and has a straightness guarantee of 1/8" over 5' for flat bar, exceeding ASTM A6 standards for straightness. Additionally, TruSTRENGTH 100 ksi angles provide a structural product that features the same high-strength, low-weight properties as TruSTRENGTH flat bar when compared to more conventional, non-treated grades.

Applications

Our high-strength flat bar and structural steel is an integral part of products in industries requiring a high-performance steel product. TruSTRENGTH steel meets the most stringent requirements and specifications for both its chemical and mechanical properties and is suited for the following applications:

  • Flatbed trailers
  • Medium and long-haul trucks
  • Forestry trucks and harvesters 
  • Rail cars
  • Jet bridges
  • Heavy transport trucks
  • Mobile cranes
  • Lift trucks
  • Snow plows
  • Construction cranes

TruSTRENGTH - FLAT PLATE PRODUCTS

Available in a variety of grades ranging from 110 to 140 ksi, TruSTRENGTH steel plate is melted and manufactured in the U.S. and meets ASTM chemical and mechanical properties. It can be welded, is formable and ready to be fabricated. 

Our TruFLAT technology, along with other inherent TruSTRENGTH properties, ensures that our high-strength plate excels in downstream fabrication processes. Our state-of-the-art heat treating, quench and tempering process reduces and relieves the stresses induced during manufacturing, ensuring the parts remain flat when cut. With a superior surface quality, the smooth finish plate is ready for exposed or painted applications.


Applications 

Our high-strength steel plate is an integral part of products in industries that call for a high-performance steel solution. TruSTRENGTH high-strength steel plate products have various uses and applications, but primarily lend their strength to the transportation, DOT and construction fields, including: 

  • Medium and long-haul trucks 
  • Oilfield rigs 
  • Forestry trucks and harvesters 
  • Rail cars 
  • Jet bridges 
  • Heavy transport trucks 
  • Mobile cranes 
  • Lift trucks 
  • Snow plows
