What type of steel is S355?
S355J2 steel is a carbon manganese ,high yield non alloy steel. It is called S355 because of the average minimum yield for this material is 355Mpa. As a structural steel, it has excellent strength and weldability. It can be readily welded to other weldable steel. For its low carbon equivalent, it possesses good cold-forming properties. S355J2 is generally supplied in a normalized condition.

Normalizing of Carbon steel S355J2
Normalizing is used to refine the structure of forgings that might have cooled non-uniformly after forged and considered as a conditioning treatment before final heat treatment. Normalizing temperature for S355J2 steel should be carried out between 890℃-950℃. hold suitable time for the steel to be thoroughly heated to complete the ferrite to austenite transformation. Cool in still air.
Application of S355 Carbon steel
S355J2 is a low carbon structural steel grade often used for application which require better mechanical properties than that of S275 and S235 grade. It is widely used in engineering and construction industries.
