EN 1.0436 (P305GH) Non-Alloy Steel

EN 1.0436 steel is a carbon (non-alloy) steel formulated for primary forming into wrought products. Cited properties are appropriate for the normalized condition. 1.0436 is the EN numeric designation for this material. P305GH is the EN chemical designation.

The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare EN 1.0436 steel to: wrought carbon or non-alloy steels (top), all iron alloys (middle), and the entire database (bottom). A full bar means this is the highest value in the relevant set. A half-full bar means it's 50% of the highest, and so on.
