Special steel grades for gas cylinders and gas vessels

Usage

These steel grades are characterized by a minimum yield strength of 245 - 355 MPa and by good weldability. The user of these steel grades must make sure that his calculation, design and processing methods are appropriate for the material. The steel grades of this series are used for manufacturing gas cylinders by welding cold-formed parts together and normalizing the finished cylinder.
