P265GH Pressure Vessel Steel

P265GH is a weldable pressure vessel and boiler steel grade used by the world's industrial fabricators.

The material, which is ideally suited for elevated temperature service, is commonly found in the oil & gas, petrochemical and chemical industry. This European standard grade steel has replaced the BS1501 and DIN17155 specification.

As one of the world's leading steel stockholders, Masteel UK Limited offer grade P265GH from stock at our steel warehouse in Birmingham, UK, and is available for shipping worldwide. The material comes with mill test certification and stamping and is therefore fully traceable. Like the majority of our steels, grade P265GH can be subjected to a variety of stringent tests prior to distribution.

The technical specifications of P265GH are outlined in the tables below.

    dear sir

    pl. provide any equivalent grade of P265GH in any indian standard

    thanking you with regards
    om prakash

    • Paul Murphy Paul Murphy United Kingdom says:

      Hi Omi,

      There is no direct equivalent.
      Nearest is approximately:
      IS 2002 Garde 1 or Grade 2A or Grade 2B
      Client should chose whichever is best for his application.

      Hope this helps.
