Grade S355J2H is a low-carbon manganese-containing steel alloy. This medium tensile carbon steel possesses both good weldable properties as well as good impact resistance. Steel grade S355J2h is also well suited to be employed in sub-zero temperature applications. There are several designations allocated under specification EN 10210. For instance, the symbol J in combination with either numerical i.e. 0 or 2, would mean that the specific impact properties of EN 10219 S355J2H Steel Pipe at specific temperature points of 0℃ and – 20℃ apiece.

The letter H is a designation intended for hollow sectioned products like the S355J2H Pipe. The other designation that touches the base with regards to its application is the letter S, which is a typical feature of structural steel. There are several reasons as to why the EN 10219 S355J2H Seamless Pipe exhibits good impact strength. Firstly, the chemistry of the carbon steel group contains manganese, which not only improves its strength but also improves the hardness properties of the S355J2H EN 10219 Pipes. Secondly, in comparison to regular pipes, hollow sections have thicker walls. A thicker cross-section also makes EN 10219 Grade S355J2H Hot Finished CHS sturdy and very durable.

Weldability of EN 10219 S355J2H Pipe

This European standard only allows for the use of weldable steel. EN 1011-1 and EN 1011-2 specify the critical parameters for the welding of the products covered by this European standard.

While welding these materials, the primary worry is the development of cold cracking in the welded zone as the product’s thickness, strength level, and CEV grows. Cold cracking happens for a variety of reasons:

  • Enhanced diffusible hydrogen concentrations in the weld metal;
  • Brittle structure in the heat-affected zone;
  • High tensile stress concentrations in the welded joint
