ISO 3574 1999 Commercial Cold Rolled CR 1 Steels

Designation for Commercial Steels

CR1 is the designation for cold rolled commercial steels in the international standard.

Chemical Composition of Commercial Cold Roll Steels: The Chemical Composition of International Commercial Steels:

The chemical composition of Commercial steel CR 1 as defined in International Standard is described as under:

  • Maximum percentage of Carbon (C) is 0.15 percent.
  • Maximum percentage of Manganese (Mn) is 0.60 percent.
  • Maximum percentage of Phosphorous (P) is 0.05 percent.
  • Maximum percentage of Sulphur (S) is 0.035 percent.

Remaining percentage is of iron (Fe) percentage and with few negligible impurities.

The Mechanical Properties of Commercial Steels in International Standard:

Similar to JIS, The international standard defines the tensile strength of materials but it defines the maximum range whereas the JIS defines the minimum range.

  • The maximum tensile strength for HR1 material is 410 MPa.
  • However the elongation is in between 28 percent minimum depending on the material thickness.
  • The material designation is conforming on 180 degree bend on itself.
