S355 structural steel plate is a high-strength low-alloy European standard structural steel covering four of the six "Parts" within the EN 10025 – 2004 standard. With minimum yield of 50,000 KSI, it meets requirements in chemistry and physical properties similar to ASTM A572 / 709. Careful attention should always be placed on the specific variation of S355 required if considering substitute material.
S355 is used in almost every facet of structural fabrication. Typical applications include:
- Structural steelworks: bridge components, components for offshore structures
- Power plants
- Mining and earth-moving equipment
- Load-handling equipment
- Wind tower components
