India's Jindal Stainless To Manufacture High Nitrogen Steel (HNS) For Armour Applications

India's Jindal Stainless (Hisar)  today has entered into the defence sector by signing the License agreement with Defence Research & Development Organisation (DRDO), Ministry of Defence which entails transfer of technology for manufacturing High Nitrogen Steel (HNS) for Armour applications.

The agreement was signed in the presence of Union Minister of State for Defence, Dr. Subhash Bhamre, and Mr. Abhyuday Jindal, Vice Chairman, Jindal Stainless (Hisar) Limited, the company annouced today.

 With this, the integrated stainless steel producer now becomes India’s first company to commercially manufacture High Nitrogen Steel for the defence sector.

The use of HNS will replace the existing import of Rolled Homogenous Armour (RHA), thereby resulting in improved cost efficiency in material acquisition for armour applications by 50%.
