Shipbuilding steel plate is mainly used for ship hulls and vessels,offshore and onshore platforms.All shipbuilding steel plate normally get one or two International Association of Classification Societies approval and the surveyor would sign and stamp on mill inspection certificate for each ship plate.

According to different tensile strength,shipbuilding steel plate was divided as Common strength shipbuilding plate and High tensile strength shipbuilding plate.Common strength shipbuiling plate includes grade A,B,D,E,high tensile strength shipbuilding plate includes grade AH32,AH36,AH40,DH32,DH36,DH40,EH32,EH36,EH40,FH32,FH36,FH40.



How to choose steel grades from shipbuilding steel plate ?

The ship body is mainly built with grade A&B or high strength grade AH36,but if vessel or bulker used in low temperature surroundings,the grade shall be chosed with grade D,E,DH36,EH36,FH36,if need to bear higher strength,grade DH40,EH40,FH40 is chosed,these grades has a better weldability and corrosion resistance in high tensile strength.
