S690QL high strength steel plate

S690 QL is a high yield structural steel grade produced in compliance with EN 10025:6:2004. The material is heat treated using the quench and temper process and has good bending and welding properties.
Product introduction
Due to the materials high strength nature, using S690QL will promote leaner designed structures with increased payload capacity and energy efficiency.
The technical details of S690QL are outlined below.
S690QL - Grade Designation
The grade designation of S690QL are the following:
S = Structural Steel
690 = minimum yield strength (MPa)
Q = Quenching & Tempering
L = Low notch toughness testing temperature
