The most common type of steel used in industry. These qualities are applied for building constructions, ships, road and water construction, and other standard applications. Mostly applied in the form of plates, profiles (U, H, L), tubes, or shafts.
For the metalworking of steel bars, the standard norm in recent years has mostly shifted from S235 to S355. This quality is better applicable in both cold and warm environments, and due to the higher mechanical values, constructions can be made lighter.
If impact test values are requested, then the following designations are essential:
Scroll horizontally in the table to see everything
||Avg 27J at Room temperature
||Avg 27J at 0°C
||Avg 27J at -20°C
Tip: if the impact test values are mentioned on a 3.1 certificate, be sure to check whether the test piece is normalized or whether it is as produced.
