Mechanical properties

Metallic coated high-strength steel grades have the following mechanical properties (skin-passed) - these are measured transverse to the rolling direction:

 

Phosphorus-alloyed steels

  Grade CR P260
Coating type   GI/GA
Yield strength ReL N/mm2 260 - 320
Tensile strength Rm N/mm2 380 - 440
Elongation % 28
Min. r-value   -
Min. n-value   -
Not in EN 10346:2015. Tata Steel’s own specification.
Lower yield strength or 0.2% proof stress applies.
For galvannealed grades (ZF) the minimum elongation before fracture is lowered by 2%. 
Elongation after fracture A uses test piece length L0 = 80 mm.
For galvannealed grades (ZF) the minimum r90-value is lowered by 0.2.
Phosphorus-alloyed steels are currently not available with MagiZinc® coatings.
