• GBT6479 16MnQ345B Seamless steel tubes for high-pressure chemical fertilizer equipments

Q345 steel is a Chinese GB standard low alloy high strength structural steel, material density is 7.85 g/cm3, tensile strength is 470-630 Mpa, and yield strength is 345 MPa. “Q” is the first letter of Chinese Pinyin: “qu fu dian”, which means Yield Point, “345” is the minimum value of yield strength 345 MPa for steel thickness ≤16mm. It has 5 quality grades: Q345A, Q345B, Q345C, Q345D and Q345E.

Q345 steel has good weldability, cold & hot workability and corrosion resistance. Widely used in bridges, ships, boilers, pressure vessels, petroleum storage tanks, lifting transport machinery and other high-load welded structural parts.
