UrBC, Yekaterinburg, March 6, 2019. EVRAZ Nizhny Tagil Metallurgical Plant (EVRAZ NTMK) started making fourteen new rolled steel section varieties in 2018, EVRAZ Holding Ural reports.

The plant's Wheel Band Department now makes seven more kinds of rail wheels. The Heavy Mill Department makes a new semi-finished pipe variety (diameter: 156 mm). The Rail Department started making rails for the underground lines.

The Beam-Rolling Department mastered three new kinds of H-beams: the UC 15K for the Russian market and НЕ260 and НЕ320 varieties that comply with the EU standards. Last year, the company also started making new H-beam types 30SH0 and 35K1.5 in order to expand the plant's H-beam product range and in response to the customers' needs.

EVRAZ NTMK makes its metal goods from naturally alloyed converter steel which, in its turn, is made from vanadium cast iron (no scrap metal added). This steel has very low non-metallic particle and gas content and is the kind of steel that is most suitable for use in heavy-duty, low-temperature conditions.

The plant makes over 300 kinds of beam profiles and more than 60 kinds of rail wheels.
