Special Bar Quality Steel Forgings

Special Bar Quality Steel (SBQ) is a type of steel generally used to make closed-die forgings. This steel is produced for its high purity and high strength. This steel is excellent for closed die forging needs because of its higher quality. SBQ steels are at the higher end of the quality spectrum in both cleanliness and metallurgical consistency.

SBQ Steel Applications

SBQ steel with its superior metallurgical properties makes it indispensable in the manufacture of components that are for high-stress applications. These are often safety-critical components such as shafts, gears, axles, drivetrains for automobiles and trucks, aerospace, energy, off-highway vehicles, and industrial capital equipment.
