Q235 Steel Plate for Pizza
« on: October 30, 2013, 10:14:40 PM »
Note: I posted this before in a previous thread, but I think it would be better in its own thread.

I'm based in Shanghai, and its difficult to get A36 steel.

After speaking with the local fabricators, i managed to get a Q235 (also known as A3) steel sheet.

Would this work as well and is there any risk to health?

Link below is the composition of it.

The fabricators were great though, they rounded the edges of the sheet so there's less likelihood of cutting oneself. Now I just need to confirm the steel is usable.

Its useable.  No hazards.  The chrome, nickel and manganese and other alloying agents reduce the heat transfer rate.   I would guess this alloy would have thermal properties toward some stainless steels.  It'll be fine.

Thanks for the advice. I can't wait to use it in my new oven.

It can hit 275 degrees celsius, and has a wattage of 3200W.

Now to clean that bugger first.
