G250 steel is regarded as the most common grade available. Like G350 steel, it is considered to be a ‘mild’ type of steel; one with less than a 0.2 percent carbon level. It also comes available in two different forms: pattern plate form and coil form. Because of the varying methods of production, both G250 steel types can have different properties and perform in different ways. Therefore they are rarely used interchangeably and are best used for specific applications. If you’re looking for grade 250 steel in either flat plate or coil form in Melbourne, discover the range available at Australian Steel today.

Common Properties and Characteristics of Grade 250 Steel

Like all ‘mild steels’, G250 steel is wildly versatile in its multitude of uses. It’s a highly weldable material that’s extremely durable with the right treatment, offering just enough flexibility to avoid cracking and breaking under specific conditions. Common uses for G250 steel include general metal fabrication, structural members, high rise buildings, storage tanks, bridges, and more.
