Wide range of carbon and weathering steel grades

ArcelorMittal Europe Flat products is one of the key leader in Europe for heavy plates (“quarto plates”) with one of the most extended offers in:

  • Steel grades capabilities, covering almost all range of applications in building, civil engineering, offshore and renewable energy.
  • Dimensions and weight
  • Geographical coverage, thanks to its 2 mills located in Gijon (Spain) and Galati (Romania).

Product range from both mills includes:

  • Structural steels
  • High yield strength steels for cold forming - thermomechanical steels
  • High yield strength steels for cold forming - normalised or normalised rolled steels
  • Steels with improved atmospheric corrosion resistance Indaten®
  • Weldable fine grain structural steels - thermomechanical rolled steels
  • Weldable fine grain structural steels - normalised or normalised rolled steels
  • Weldable structural steels for fixed offshore structures
  • Steels for shipbuilding
  • Steels for pipes
  • Steels for pressure vessels and boilers

Since 1 July 2013, the Construction Products Regulation (Regulation (EU) No. 305/2011 – CPR) has required that CE marking be affixed to all products delivered in accordance with a harmonized standard (e.g. EN 10025 for structural steel). This CE marking guarantees, for the uses defined in the standard, the properties described in the declaration of performance submitted by the manufacturer.
