S500Q Steel Grade, Mechanical Properties, Chemical Composition, Grade Equivalent

Standard: EN 10025-6:2004, European standard for hot-rolled structural steel. Part 6 - Technical delivery conditions for flat products of high yield strength structural steels in the quenched and tempered condition

Steel grade: S500Q ;

Number: 1.8924 .

Weldability : The steels specified in this document do not have unlimited suitability for the various welding processes, since the behaviour of a steel during and after welding depends not only on the material but also on the dimensions and shape and on the manufacturing and service conditions of the components. General requirements for arc welding of the steels specified in this document shall be as given in EN 1011-2.

With increasing product thickness and strength level cold cracking can occur. Cold cracking is caused by the following factors in combination:

− the amount of diffusible hydrogen in the weld metal;

− a brittle structure of the heat affected zone;

− significant tensile stress concentrations in the welded joint.

Ladle analysis.
Depending on the thickness of the product and the manufacturing conditions, the manufacturer may add to the steel one or several alloying elements up to the maximum values given in order to obtain the specified properties.
Nb, Ti, V, Zr shall be at least 0,015 % of a grain-refining element present. Aluminium is also one of these elements. The minimum content of 0,015 % applies to soluble aluminium, this value is regarded as attained if the total aluminium content is at least 0,018 %; in case of dispute the soluble aluminium content shall be determined.
