High quality standards, guaranteed strength, and durability offered by steel products provide a sense of security and stability. ArcelorMittal Europe’s trademark steels, including the HISTAR® and Amstrong® structural steel grades that combine high strength, good toughness, and superior weldability, perfectly match these requirements.
The aesthetics of steel and its unthinkable beauty can be seen in countless aspects:
- A large panel of surface finishes: smooth, grained, textured, or embossed.
- A wide choice of colours: solid, metallic, pearlescent.
- A required degree of gloss: anything from matt to high gloss.
- Various printed patterns can be proposed to complete the range of possibilities.
To obtain such performances, among other product ranges, ArcelorMittal Europe offers:
For outdoor use
- Granite® product range
- Indaten® weathering steels with their specific patina finish
For indoor use
- Estetic® product range
We are at your disposal, ready to offer products of the highest quality that perfectly suit your needs.
Who, if not investors, are the parents of every project? They are the ones who exude that first impulse - the idea. They turn their dreams into reality, transferring them onto paper through the imagination of an architect and the knowledge of an engineer. Both of these ingredients ensure the practical operation and use of the facility. No project would be possible without this vital team: investor - architect - engineer - contractor. It is the investor, however, who plays the deciding role and determines if the investment is to occur. There are multiple areas to be satisfied - aesthetics, quality, functionality, and of course, the one that in fact "manages" the investment - the economic one.

Economical and safe design approaches for steel sheet piling structures in highly seismic zones
Widely used for the construction of a variety of structures such as quay walls and breakwaters in harbours, bank reinforcements on rivers and canals, underpasses, as well as global hazard protection schemes, sheet piles have proven their performance in seismic areas in many countries around the globe.Chile, the country that has suffered the strongest earthquakes in recorded history, provides an excellent example: Whereas its concrete-based ports have been severely damaged, the Port of Mejillones, constructed in 2003 using an HZ®/AZ® combined wall for the quay wall and AS 500 straight web sheet piles for the breakwater, has not suffered any damage throughout many heavy earthquakes with magnitudes of up to 7.7. This is the perfect example of the effectiveness of flexible sheet pile structures under extreme seismic conditions.Nevertheless, a certain reluctance to use sheet piles in seismic areas remains common among some designers. This concern may come from their experience of conventional design methods which do not favour flexible walls in seismic areas. These design methods are usually comprised of pseudo-static calculations using the Mononobe-Okabe theory (1931).Numerical studies and physical experiments (centrifuge testing) have shown that these conventional methods of design are overestimating the loads on retaining walls - especially in the case of flexible walls. Although EN 1998-5 allows for a reduction of the seismic action depending on the acceptable displacements (reduction factor “r”), this only applies to gravity walls and not to anchored walls such as sheet pile walls, despite their inherent ductility.Today, powerful design tools using Finite Element Modelling (FEM) allow for dynamic calculations that can accurately predict the behaviour of the retaining walls undergoing different seismic loadings, including internal forces, deformations, increases in pore water pressures, and expected modes of failure.Article

ArcelorMittal plans major investment in German sites to accelerate CO2 emissions reduction25 May 2021
ArcelorMittal is planning to build a large-scale industrial plant for the direct reduction of iron ore (DRI) and electric arc furnace (EAF)-based steelmaking at its site in Bremen, as well as an innovative DRI pilot plant in addition to an EAF in Eisenhüttenstadt, following the announcement of the planned expansion of Germany’s hydrogen infrastructure.Corporate News
European Year of Rail: discover ArcelorMittal’s commitment to the rail sector22 April 2021
2021 is the European Year of Rail.Officially launched on 29 March by the European Commission, the European Year of Rail will aim to highlight the benefits of rail as a sustainable, smart, and safe means of transport. “Environmentally-friendly and energy-efficient, rail will play a crucial role in helping the EU become climate neutral by 2050. The COVID-19 crisis has also shown how rail transport can facilitate the supply of essential goods such as medical devices, food, and fuel in exceptional circumstances” declared Oleg Butković, Croatian Minister for the Sea, Transport, and Infrastructure, President of the Council of the EU.Corporate News
As a steel manufacturer who is involved in many investment processes, ArcelorMittal perfectly understands the various needs of a project and can provide products that meet all the demands requested by the market.
Economical steel is a concept known to everyone. A short construction periods allow for faster access to the facility and therefore limits construction costs, leads to earlier return on investment, and reduces interest charges.
As far as functionality is concerned, steel-framed buildings are not only easier to adapt, but in comparison to classic technology they allow for higher floors and more usable area - at the same time increasing cubic capacity.
Steel components as one of the most sustainable building materials in the world. Structural frames, external walls, solar shadings - they all provide credit points for green building rating systems like USGBC's LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) or BREEAM (The Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method), increasing the incontestable value of the investment.
