Mechanical properties

The available grades have the following mechanical properties - these are measured perpendicular to the rolling direction (transverse test pieces):
 

Rephosphorised grades

Tata Steel Grade HC260P
Yield strength Re 1 N/mm2 260 - 320
Tensile strength Rm N/mm2 360 - 440
Elongation 2 % 29
Min. r-value 3   -
Min. n-value n90   -
1. If the yield strength is pronounced (yield flag), the values apply to the lower yield point (ReL).
2. When thickness ≤ 0.7mm, the minimum value for elongation is reduced by 2%.
   Elongation after fracture A uses test piece length L0 = 80 mm.
3. For products with thickness > 2mm the minimum r90 is reduced by 0.2.
