P355 boiler plate to EN10028-2 is a fine grained steel for used in pressure vessels, heat exchangers and reactors.
P355 is one of our most popular pressure vessel steels. This is because our large steel stock of P355 is characterised by a high overall tonnage, large availability of plate dimensions in each thickness and the high quality of the steel we supply.
P355 is the highest quality pressure vessel steel in common use that is specified by EN10028-2 and EN10028-3 (Though we also have P460NL2 in stock). Some of the plates are characterised by their high weldability and fine grain structure, whilst others have improved properties making them suitable for elevated temperatures. The main grades that we supply are:
P355 Steel Plate Available Ex-Stock
Plates are available in thicknesses from 6mm to 200mm with many thicker plates available. We have a wide variety of plate dimensions available with 2m, 2.5m and 3m widths being the most common. Lengths available in stock are 12m and then multiples of 3m or 4m.
Our thicker plates come from Dillinger Hutte, the famous German heavy plate steel mill, whilst many of the thinner plates come from Thyssen or Dureco Clabecq. The P355 plates are all certified to EN10204 and have either a 3.1 or 3.2 MTC. Some plates may also be certified to the old version of EN10204 and have a 3.1B certificate.
