Download data sheet
The high-strength structural steel at 600 MPa
Strenx® 600MC D/E is a hot-rolled structural steel made for cold forming, with a minimum yield strength of 600 MPa for stronger and lighter structures. Strenx® 600MC D/E meets or exceeds the requirements of S600MC in EN 10149-2.
Typical applications include a wide range of components and parts, such as demanding load-bearing structures. Strenx® 600MC D/E comes in coils, slit coils or cut-to-length sheets.

The mechanical properties are tested in the longitudinal direction.
1) If ReH is not applicable then Rp0.2 is used.
2) A80 value applies for thicknesses < 3.00 mm.
3) A5 value applies for thicknesses ≥ 3.00 mm.
4) For both longitudinal and transverse direction.

Strenx® 600MC D/E has good welding, cold forming and cutting performance.
Strenx® 600MC D/E is a cold forming steel not suited for heat treatments at temperatures above 580°C since the material then may lose its guaranteed properties.
For information concerning fabrication, see SSAB´s brochures on www.ssab.com or consult Tech Support.
Appropriate health and safety precautions must be taken when bending, welding, cutting, grinding or otherwise working on the products.
You can improve the performance and reduce the weight of your equipment by upgrading from Strenx® 600MC to Strenx® 700MC. A 17% higher yield strength means a higher load-bearing capacity.
