This Environmental Product Declaration refers to Hot Rolled Steel Coil, Slit Coil and Sheet, including Indaten® weathering steel and Amstrong® high strength steel range. The EPD results reflect the volume weighted average of these products.
Hot Rolled Coils are produced in ArcelorMittal hot-rolling mill in which solidified steel preheated to a high temperature is continuously rolled between a series of stands of rotating cylinders. Alloy composition and process parameters are set to guarantee the required grade. The coils are then delivered to manufacturers for shaping into end products to be included in building works, generally to precise dimensions, thereby avoiding losses on the construction site.
Mean thickness value is at 5 mm but the declaration covers the whole range from 1.5 mm up to 25.4 mm. Width range is from 45 mm up to 2150 mm.
For the placing of the product on the market in the European Union/European Free Trade Association (EU/EFTA) (with the exception of Switzerland) Regulation (EU) No. 305/2011 (CPR) applies. The product has a declaration of performance taking into consideration EN 10025-1:2004 - Hot rolled products of structural steels - Part 1: General technical delivery conditions. For the application and use the respective national provisions Apply.
Other European standards concerning Hot Rolled Coils could also be used by manufacturers as reference:
EN 10149-1:2013 - Hot rolled flat products made of high yield strength steels for cold-forming - Part 1: General technical delivery conditions can be considered as specified in EN 1993-1-3:2006 - Eurocode 3 - Design of steel structures - Part 1-3: General rules - Supplementary rules for cold-formed members and sheeting. Products covered by EN 10149-1:2013 are not under CPR and did not request CE marking to be placed on the market
Characteristics are also specified in the American standard ASTM G101-04:2015 (American Society for Testing and Materials) for hot rolled material.
