                    SSAB Multisteel SN provides two different certificates:

                    EN 10204-3.1 for SSAB Multisteel SN.

                    EN 10204-3.1+CE for S355K2/J2/J0/JR+N EN 10025-2.

                    Fabrication and Other Recommendations


                    Weldability is excellent with all welding processes. Increased working temperature requirements are less than those of the corresponding strength grades of standard steels. This means easier welding and cost savings under both workshop and site welding conditions.

                    Needed working temperatures for thick plates please consult SSAB Tech Support.


                    SSAB Multisteel offers better formability properties than standard steels. Successful forming requires that the manufacturer uses good workshop techniques. Worn tools, poor lubrication, scratches on the surface of the steel as well as edge burrs will all reduce forming quality.

                    Guaranteed minimum bending radius for all directions is 1.5 x t up to 30 mm thick plate where t = plate thickness.

                    Heat treatment:

                    Recommendations for stress relieving and normalizing

                    Stress relieving 550 – 600°C (target 580°C)

                    2 minutes/millimeter of thickness, however, 30 minutes minimum. Slow cooling in the furnace.

                    Normalizing 900 – 940°C (target 920°C)

                    1 minute/millimeter of thickness, however, 20 minutes minimum. Cooling in free air.


                    Two options for SSAB Multisteel SN are specified below. In the event that the purchaser does not indicate his wish to implement either of these options, SSAB shall supply in accordance with the basic specification. Option can be implement one at a time, not together.

                    1) According to Norsok M-120/MDS Y05:

                    C max 0.16%

                    CEV max 0.41

                    Thickness range 5.0-50.0mm

                    Y05 will be on the certificate and stamped on the plate

                    Option 1 provides three different certificates:

                    EN 10204-3.1 for SSAB Mutisteel SN

                    EN 10204-3.1+CE for S355K2/J2+N EN 10025-2

                    EN 10204-3.1+CE for S355J0/JR+N EN 10025-2

                    2) Low Si value 0.15 - 0.25 %

                    CEV max 0.41

                    Thickness range 5.0-30.0mm

                    For information concerning fabrication, see SSAB´s brochures on or consult Tech Support.

                    Appropriate health and safety precautions must be taken when bending, welding, cutting, grinding or otherwise working on the products.
