  • EN 10025 S890QL Steel Plate
    Is becoming increasingly popular with engineers and designers looking to exploit its strength to weight ratio. Use of S890 steel will ensure higher payloads for lifting and transportation equipment. A lighter truck body will allow more material to be carried while lifting booms on can be lightened, strengthened and lengthened.
    S890 steel is used in applications such as cranes (mobile and loader), aerial platforms, load handling equipment, bridges, and special containers.

  • We find that the category of steel plate that EN 10025 S890QL falls into is called different things by different engineers. Plate of this type is variously described as:
    • High Strength Quenched and Tempered Steel Plate
    • High Yield Quenched and Tempered Steel Plate
    • High Strength Structural Steel Plate,
    • High Yield Structural Steel Plate
    • High Strength Low Alloy Steel Plate
    • HSLA

  • Brown McFarlane and S890QL Steel Plate
    Brown McFarlane holds a substantial stock of S890QL steel plates in the UK. These plates are frequently sold as cut to size pieces and shapes which are produced on the company’s computer controlled cutting machines but plates straight from stock for fabrication by our customers are also readily available.
