Swebor is an armour and ballistic steel producer and manufacturer. Our services are used in a wide range of protection applications for the military industry.

Swebor’s armour features high-quality ballistic protection properties in combination with a high level of hardness and strength, as well as easy handling. A test must be performed for each application to verify actual ballistic protection properties.

Our armour comprises ballistic protection, fabrication, availability and pricing, and is ideal for bulletproof steel.

Swebor armour can be used for a variety of military-based applications.
Swebor abrasion-resistant plates are able to combat heavy-wear conditions.
Swebor wear plates are used within a range of high-demand, wear-resistant applications.

Ballistic protection armour for defence operations

Swebor’s armour comprises low-alloyed ballistic protection steels available in hardnesses of 400HB to 600HB and thicknesses of 2mm to 40mm. Low carbon and manganese content, comprised with its controlled heating, rolling and cooling sequences gives Swebor armour a combination of hardness, high-strength, weldability, bendability, ballistic protection ability and multi-hit capability.

Ballistic protection steel grades include:

  • Swebor Armour 370 blast protection steel
  • Swebor Armour 440 blast protection steel
  • Swebor Armour 500 high hard (HH) steel
  • Swebor Armour 550B extra-high hard (EHH) steel
  • Swebor Armour 560 extra-high hard (EHH) steel
  • Swebor Armour 600 ultra-high hard (UHH) steel

Abrasion-resistant wear protection plates for high-demand applications

Swebor abrasion-resistant wear protection plates are designed to withstand challenging conditions, as well as applications where efficient weld ability and strength are required.

The Swebor 400 is used within high-demand, wear-resistant applications such as waste removal equipment, cement trucks, armoured vehicles, armoured cars, security vehicles, mining and agricultural machine wearing parts, mining truck bodies and loader buckets. The Swebor 400 can utilise thinner dimensions and a lower general vehicle weight to empower expanded payloads.

Engineering and environmental work

Swebor provides engineering specifications according to client requirements, such as counterweight steel delivery to heavy-load manufacturers and offshore industries.

We aim to minimise the impact on our environment by using as much renewable energy as possible. We also try to maximise the use of railroad transports and recycle consumables and material when possible.
