/INS. Ruukki, a European steel manufacturer and supplier, is exhibiting its Ramor protection steels at the DVD2014 exhibition in Millbrook, Bedfordshire on 25-26 June 2014. Ramor protection steels are for applications where high ballistic resistance or blast protection is required. Ramor is mostly used for armoured vehicles, doors and systems for transporting valuables. Ramor 450 is Ruukki’s latest protection steel for the manufacture of armoured vehicles and now enables steel for the entire armoured vehicle frame to be sourced from the same manufacturer.
Designed for applications requiring protection against explosions or ballistic threats, Ramor protection steels combine excellent ballistic properties with hardness and high strength. Ramor steels are the only protection steels on the market made by direct quenching technology and can be up to six times harder than ordinary structural steel. Direct-quenched steels have excellent surface quality and flatness, together with good cutting, bending and welding properties. Ramor steels like all Ruukki special steels, come with full technical and application support.
Ramor 450 enables manufacture of new types of standard floor structures designed for armoured vehicles. The steel can be used as a frame structure or on the floor of the vehicle as a separate shield against mines where it protects against blast or shock waves and shrapnel. The Ramor 400 grade is designed to give protection against high pressures caused by explosions and blasts.
Both the Ramor 550 grade and the Ramor 500 grade are the most appropriate alternative when protection is needed against kinetic energy projectiles, i.e. ballistic performance. Ramor also offers the best solutions for products where the weight of the steel structure is a significant factor, especially in mobile applications. Weight reduction of 10-20% can be achieved by using the Ramor 550 grade.
