Structural steel 235JR is one of the most commonly used steels for structural purposes, its basic strength level is 235 MPa and it is produced according to the European standard EN 10025-2.
Steel 235JR has a relatively wide range of applications, which is due to its high plasticity, i.e. ductility and weldability. The material can be bent and cut in various ways without the formation of various cracks and fissures. Thanks to these properties, it is used in many industries.
In addition, 235JR structural steel is affordable, but it must be handled correctly. Although the material is relatively flexible, it is susceptible to temperature changes, so it is important to process the steel correctly. We will be happy to help you with this, do not hesitate to contact us.
How is 235JR steel produced?
Structural steel 235JR is produced by the process of melting and steelmaking. The smelting process involves smelting iron ore and other raw materials such as limestone and coke in furnaces at high temperatures. This process produces crude steel that contains high levels of carbon and other impurities.
The raw steel is then cleaned in furnaces to purify and reduce the carbon content and other impurities. This is done by processes such as the blast furnace, the LD process (converter steel mill) or the electric furnace. After cleaning, steel is sometimes alloyed with other metals to improve its strength and properties.
After the steel has been cleaned and alloyed, it is made into 235JR structural steel by rolling and other processes. During rolling, the steel is heated to a high temperature and then shaped into the desired form. This process can be carried out in several stages to achieve the desired shape and dimensions.
Overall, 235JR structural steel is an excellent choice for structural projects that require high strength and good ductility. With high weldability and corrosion resistance, the steel is ideal for a wide range of industries in the industrial and construction sectors.
