Q345C Steel Properties and Introduction

Q345C steel is a Chinese GB standard Low Alloy High Strength Structural Steel, material density is 7.85 g/cm3, tensile strength is 470-630 Mpa, and yield strength is 345 MPa (datasheet tested with 16mm diameter steel bars or steel plates). According to GB/T 1591 – 2008, Q345 material has 5 quality grades: Q345A, Q345B, Q345C, Q345D and Q345E. “Q” is the first letter of Chinese Pinyin: “qu fu dian”, which means Yield Point, “345” is short for 345 MPa. For datasheet and specification, please see the tables below.

Q345 steel weldability, cold & hot workability and corrosion resistance are good. Widely used in bridges, ships, boilers, pressure vessels, petroleum storage tanks, lifting transport machinery and other high-load welded structural parts.
