RQT 701 Quenched and Tempered Steel Plate

RQT® 701 is a Tata Steel proprietary grade of high-strength quenched and tempered structural steel that is no longer manufactured.

  • Previously manufactured by Tata Steel which is one of Europe's largest steel makers
  • Combines high yield and tensile strengths with good notch toughness and excellent weldability
  • The steel is very similar in its properties to the European steel specification EN 10025 S690QL
