For the estimation in April and the second quarter, the estimation on March 16 is still valid, but the decrease in April is 10% higher than the neutral prediction. It is a conservative estimation based on 10% for the high probability event. In the second quarter, the output of overseas pig iron will be reduced by 11.67 million tons, affecting the demand for Comparison of SA572 Gr.50 and SA573 Grade 70 carbon plate iron ore of about 1.84 million tons; in the first half of the year, the output will be reduced by 18.899 million tons, affecting the demand for iron ore of 32.13 million tons.
The basic phases of Comparison of SA572 Gr.50 and SA573 Grade 70 carbon plate, structural steel in the annealed state are ferrite and carbide. The alloy elements are dissolved in ferrite to form alloy ferrite, which depends on solid solution strengthening to increase strength and hardness, but at the same time reduce plasticity and toughness. The addition of alloying elements reduces the carbon content of the eutectoid point, which increases the proportion of pearlite in the structure and reduces the distance of the pearlite layer. This also increases the strength of the steel and reduces the plasticity.
Comparison of SA572 Gr.50 and SA573 Grade 70 carbon plate, API 5L X52 steel with the thickness range is 1.2-40mm, the width range is 1220-4200mm, and the length range is 5000-18000mm. API 5L X52 steel’s mechanical properties is the yield strength 300MPa, and the tensile strength 460MPa. To be specified in details: Maximum content for C≤0.28%, Mn≤1.4%, P≤0.030%, S is 0.030%, V+Nb+Ti≤0.15%, Copper maximum is 0.50%, nickel maximum 0.50%, chromium 0.50%, Molybdenum 0.15%.
