Steel type S235 properties of steel
What is S235?
S235 is a summary of a number of properties that the material has. For example, the ‘S’ indicates ‘Structural’. Loosely, that means structural steel or steel. The ‘235’ indicates the yield strength in MPa (megapascals in N/mm²) at a thickness of 16 mm. This is an important value because as soon as a tensile force of 235 megapascals is reached, the steel will start to flow, resulting in permanent plastic deformation. Steel designations often have a number of suffixes that say something about the material and the production process, for example: ‘J2’ ‘K2’ ‘C’ ‘Z’ ‘W’ ‘JR’ ‘JO’ ‘N’ of ‘NL’ ‘Q’ of ‘QL’ en ‘M’ of ‘ML’.
Meaning of these abbreviations
275 / 355
J2 / K2 / JR / JO
The chemical composition of steel is also extremely important. It is a fundamental factor that strongly determines the mechanical properties of the steel. Because of this fundamental role, the production of steel is strictly monitored in accordance with the applicable European standards. The chemical composition depends on the application. For example, S235J2 is a type of steel with increased hardness (J2). The chemical composition of the steel is then slightly different than the standard S235. The engineer/builder must always take into account the exact chemical composition and the application of the material.
Competitively priced steel pipes
Are you looking for a steel pipe with a specific diameter, length and wall thickness for the lowest possible price? Then you should be at Solines! We only deliver steel pipes at very competitive prices. We can do this because we make large purchases of downgraded steel pipes and surplus batches.
