Switzerland [Europe]: The company is paving the way for future innovation with its groundbreaking invention of their own proprietary "Extreme Performance Technology (XTP®)". This cutting-edge technology has created a durable, ultra-fine-grained Steel that eliminates the need for supplementary alloys and treatment. Thanks to precise thermomechanical processing, this high-grade Steel can withstand any conditions.

Steel produced with systematic temperature control and alternative forming processes features an ultra-fine grain microstructure, with grain sizes of less than 5 µm. This unique form of Steel is lauded for its superior dynamic and mechanical properties.

Steel treated with XTP® offers the same appearance as conventional Steel, but its unique and powerful microstructure gives it unprecedented resistance and strength. This unlocks a world of possibilities for intricate designs and unconventional engineering solutions.

XTP Steel is the perfect choice for even the most difficult challenges. Its exceptional resistance to extreme temperatures, vibration, and pressure makes it a superior option. At -101°C, when conventionally produced Steel may become brittle and even crack or break, XTP Steel boasts an impressive, notched bar impact work of over 27 Joule. Through XTP technology, you can rest assured that your Steel has the highest possible resistance to cracking or breaking.

Steel has been a go-to material for many industries since its invention. However, thanks to consistent ongoing development of thermomechanical process phases, virtually any Steel can be improved.

The Swiss Steel Group have developed a process of induction heating to austenitize the Steel material, giving them control of the material properties and grain size of the microstructure. The Steel bar is then quickly cooled and fed into a high-reduction roller unit, making it ready for use in various applications.

The properties of Swiss Steel Group Steels are significantly improved with XTP® technology. The processor can save on costly and elaborate heat treatments, meaning that the quality of the Steel can be reliably enhanced from the start. Unalloyed Steels, precipitation-hardened ferrite-pearlite Steels, Bainitic Steels, quenched and tempered Steels, tool Steels, Austenitic Stainless Steels, Ferritic Stainless Steels, and high-speed Steels can all benefit from this revolutionary new treatment. Steel processing companies can take advantage of the Steel grades they’re familiar with while ensuring they get the best possible results – giving them increased confidence in their product's quality. With XTP®, all these issues are easily solved.

XTP-treated Steel has opened exciting new possibilities for a range of industries and applications. This includes spring manufacturing, hydraulics, connectors and fasteners, refrigeration systems, lifting equipment and lifting gear, cable car and aerial lift systems, wind power, the railway industry, agriculture, and forestry, as well as oil and gas extraction and recovery projects.
