Mechanical Properties

Steel supplied will comply with the mechanical property limits below.
The values of the tensile test apply to test bars parallel to the rolling direction. 
The values of the bend test apply to test bars transverse to the rolling direction.

Tata Steel Grade Ympress S355MC
Min. Yield strength  ReH1 (N/mm²)   355
Tensile strength Rm (N/mm²)   450 - 550
Elongation (%) t < 3 22
3 ≤ t < 5 27

1. Upper yield strength or 0.2% proof stress applies.
t – material thickness in mm.
Elongation after fracture A uses test piece length L0 = 80 mm for t < 3 mm. L0 = 5.65√S0 for t ≥ 3 mm.
 

Impact strength

For Ympress S355MC, a guaranteed Charpy impact strength of 40J at -20°C in longitudinal direction is available.
Impact tests can be performed for thicknesses ≥ 6.0 mm. Please contact us for details.
