More information

At Brown McFarlane we offer the widest range of carbon and stainless steel plate, available ex-stock. 

Designers are increasingly using 460 MPa yield plate to combine increased strength with savings in weight.

About EN 10025:3 S460N Steel Plate

  • The EN 10025:3 S460N steel is a structural grade of steel which is used in a wide range of applications. It is suited to use in components that need to be welded as it can be easily joined by welding.

    EN 10025:3  is a European standard for structural steel. The specification EN 10025:3 covers weldable structural steels manufactured with a fine grain structure and supplied in the normalised condition, or in an equivalent condition obtained by normalised rolling. 

    There are four different grades of EN10025:3 steel plate, (S275, S355, S420 and S460) these indicate each grade’s minimum yield strength (in MPa) for plates 16 mm thick and below. Each grade is further sub-divided based on the specified minimum value of impact energy at a particular temperature. ‘N’ indicates temperatures not lower than -20 deg C and ‘NL’ indicates temperatures not lower than -50 deg C.

    The designation EN 10025:3 S460N shows that this is steel for structural purposes (S) with minimum yield strength of 460 MPa (460) which is impact tested at -20 deg C (N).

    As well as S460N we are also stockists of plates to EN 10025:3 S460NL.
