S235JR - S355K2 | 1.0038 - 1.0596
You can use hot-rolled products made of unalloyed structural steels wherever the minimum yield strength is prescribed and static requirements have to be met. They are characterised by good weldability and formability with good strength.
The grades S355 and S460 can be supplied in the quality groups JR, J0, J2 and K2. The grades S235 and S275 are available in the quality groups JR, J0 and J2. The quality groups differ in the specified requirements for notched bar impact energy.
On request, you can select the delivery condition for long products and hot-rolled strip +AR or +N:
+ N - rolling process with a final forming in a specific temperature range, which results in a material condition equivalent to that after a normalising. In this way, the nominal values of the mechanical properties can be maintained even after an additional normalising.
+AR - "as rolled" means conventional hot rolling without normalising or thermomechanical rolling and/or heat treatment conditions such as normalising or quenching.
These steels are suitable as standard steels for general metal, structural, civil engineering and bridge construction as well as for water, vehicle and mechanical engineering. They are also easily weldable according to all common processes.
