Application: steel structures, machines, vehicles, agricultural machinery
Manufacturing process: Structural hollow sections shall be manufatured by electric welding or submerged arc welding without subsequent heat treatment.
Within the strength grades of the non-alloy steels, four qualities JR, J0, J2 and K2 are specified. These differ in respect of specified impact requirements, limits of various elements, with particular reference to sulfur and phosphorus, and the inspection and testing requirements.
Steel grades: S235JRH, S275J0H, S275J2H, S355J0H, S355J2H, S355K2H (non-alloy quality steels)
Within the strength grades of the fine grain steels, four qualities N, NL, M and ML are specified. These differ in respect of the carbon, sulfur and phosphorus content and low temperature impact properties.
Steel grades: S275NH, S275NLH, S355NH and S355NLH (non-alloy quality steels)
Steel grades: S460NH, S460NLH, S275MH to S460MH and S275MLH to S460MLH (alloy special steels)
For steels of qualities JR, J0, J2 and K2 – as rolled or normalized / normalized rolled (N)
For steels of qualities N and NL – normalized / normalized rolled (N)
For steels of quality M and ML – thermomechanically rolled (M)
