Offshore Steel Plate Stockist, Offshore Steel Plates Supplier, Offshore Steel Plates Exporters

API 2W Grade50, produced via TMCP-Thermo-Mechanical Control Processing, is an Intermediate-Strength Structural Steel Plate for welded construction of offshore structures/offshore platforms. API 2W Grade 50 has a minimum yield strength of 50ksi (345MPa) and a minimum, mid-thickness, transverse Charphy V-notch impact toughness of 41J (30 ft-lbf) at -40ºC (-40ºF). API 2H Gr50 is an offshore steel grade which is regulated by American Petroleum Institute (API) and in some cases certified by the American Bureau of Shipbuilding (ABS).

General Product Description
API 2W Grade 50 is an intermediate-strength, structural steel plate, produced by thermomechanical control processing (TMCP), that is used in the welded construction of offshore structures. API 2W Grade 50 has a minimum yield strength of 50 ksi [345 MPa] and a minimum, mid-thickness, transverse Charpy V-notch impact toughness of 30 ft-lbf [41 J] at -40°F [-40°C]. SSAB is an API Licensee under the API Monogram Program.
Applications: API 2W Grade 50 is intended primarily for use in offshore structures in critical portions that must exhibit good impact toughness and resistance to plastic fatigue loading and lamellar tearing. The primary use of API 2W Grade 50 is in tubular joints, stiffened plate construction and other intersections where portions of the plates will be subjected to tension in the through-thickness (Z) direction.
Dimensions: The following API 2W Grade 50 plate sizes are available:
Thickness: 0.500” – 1.50” (12.7 mm – 38.1 mm); Inquire for > 1.50” to 2.00 [<38.1 to 50.8 mm]
Width: 72” – 123” (1,829mm – 3,124 mm)
Length: 240” – 1080” (6.10m – 27.43 m)

Mechanical Properties
Tensile Testing is performed transverse direction according to API 2W requirements. The minimum

Tolerances

Thickness, width, and length tolerances for API 2W Grade 50 steel plate are in accordance with the requirements of ASTM A6. The flatness tolerance for as-supplied product is ½ ASTM A6.

Delivery Condition

API 2W Grade 50 is supplied in the Thermo-Mechanical Control Processing (TMCP) condition.

Fabrication and Other Recommendations

Weldability: Welding of API 2W Grade 50 shall be performed in accordance with the applicable welding code. In the absence of a specified welding code, the following suggested minimum preheat and interpass temperatures and welding consumables are provided. Special welding consumables and welding procedures may be required to match the base metal toughness. Low hydrogen practices are

strongly recommended, including the removal of surface moisture.
