The CASTRIP facility at Nucor Steel's Crawfordsville, Indiana plant is the world's first commercial installation for production of Ultra-Thin Cast Strip (UCS), via twin-roll strip casting. The facility has been producing plain, low-carbon sheet steel since 2002, with a range of structural grades available. The paper outlines some of the main parameters that influence the final microstructure and resultant mechanical properties of plain, low carbon UCS steels that have been recently made by the CASTRIP process, and then describes new Nb microalloyed UCS products that have been made in the CASTRIP process, significantly expanding the range of thin ...
