Indonesia's Gunung cuts reliance on slab imports with new caster
Indonesia’s Gunung Steel Group plans to reduce its dependence on imported slabs through the commissioning of a brand new continuous slab caster by the end of this year.

“Next month we’ll start producing slabs – we’ll be making a trial of 10,000 tonnes,” a company source told Steel First.

“We’ll be able to produce a wide range of slabs and rely less on imports,” he added. 


Application Overview



Steel is a common building material used throughout the construction industry. Its primary purpose is to form a skeleton for the building or structure – essentially the part of the structure that holds everything up and together. Steel has many advantages when compared to other structural building materials such as concrete, timber, plastics and the newer composite materials. Steel is one of the friendliest environmental building materials – steel is 100% recyclable. Steel, unlike wood, does not warp or twist and does not substantially expand and contract with the weather. Unlike concrete, steel does not need time to cure and is immediately at full strength. Steel is versatile, has more strength with less weight, has an attractive appearance, can be erected in most weather conditions, is of uniform quality, has proven durability and has low life cycle costs. These advantages make steel the building material of choice.

Steel as a building material has been studied and tested for many years. It might be said that we understand the behavior of steel better than any other building material. Steel is a predictable material and during the 1990’s the industry had implemented new procedures for designing steel structures. Structural design has evolved, mostly due to the necessity caused by earthquakes.
