Shipbuilding steel LR/B is a type of structural steel used in the construction of ships. It consists mainly of iron, carbon, manganese, phosphorus, and other elements such as silicon, nickel, chromium, and molybdenum. The composition helps give the safety required for vessels that endure heavy loads and pressure at sea.
Shipbuilding steel LR/B Sheet is a high-strength structural steel with excellent weldability and formability properties for shipbuilding applications. It offers superior resistance to corrosion, abrasion, fatigue and impact at elevated temperatures. Its low carbon content also provides good work-hardening characteristics, offering an extended service life in the most demanding marine environments. Additionally, it is suitable for cryogenic applications and available in several grades, enabling its utilization in different load-bearing scenarios.
