S355MC Steel | 1.0976 Material Properties & Equivalent

S355MC Steel – 1.0976 Material

S355MC steel (material 1.0976) is a thermomechanically rolled steel with high yield strength. It is essentially a subdivision grade of S355 steel. S355MC has a minimum yield strength of 355MPa and a tensile strength of 430-550 MPa.


S355MC meaning: S for Structural steel, 355 indicates the minimum yield strength in MPa, M is for Thermomechanically rolled, C is for cold forming. (For more European steel names meaning/designation)
