HR steel is available from Norex in coils, sheets, offcut sheets, plates and slit coils.
The material is available in quality grades ranging from soft, deep drawing quality up to strong steel with higher yield points. The numeric value in the quality indicates the minimum Yield Point in N/mm2. The higher the number, the stronger the steel.
Please note that steel with same Yield Point also can have different characteristics depending on the additional letters in the quality grade. The material is weldable and fully bendable up to 180 degrees. The higher grades need more power for bending and to be cut in guillotines, but they are not brittle.
The strength of the material depending on the quality can be summarized as follows
|Soft commercial||S200JR - S350JR |
|Medium strong||S380JR - S420JR |
|Strong and very strong||S450JR or higher, > 500JR|
