Introduction

S500MC is a high strength hot rolled structural steel used in the fabrication of cold formed components. Since S500MC is a load bearing steel, it is essential to make considerations regarding suitability at the procurement stage.

Applications of S500MC High Yield Steel

S500MC is used in various applications, including frames, structural beams, and as cold rolled steel sections. The steel benefits from good weldability but it should not be subjected to heat treatment as this process is known to reduce the material’s yield strength.
