Also in September, an order was made for the production of 60 mm thick sheet steel of 09G2S grade for the manufacture of building structures. The order had more stringent requirements in comparison with the standard for chemical composition and strength properties. Despite the fact that for rolled products with a thickness of 60 mm, a 265 strength class is provided, the Azovstal workers were able to provide the required 345 class without the use of heat treatment, "- the press service of the company reports.
