Rail Products
Rails
The majority of rails manufactured by OneSteel in Whyalla are
produced to AS 1085.1 Railway Track Material Part 1 Steel
Rails.

Depth of heat treatment and hardness gradient as per AS 1085.1-2002


Dimensions (mm) a. 15 Min. 23 Max.
Dimensions (mm) b. 20 Min. 35 Max. for 50 kg Rail
Dimensions (mm) b. 25 Min. 40 Max. for 60 kg and 68 kg Rail

Table 38 page 28 lists the various rail sections produced at Whyalla


together with the conforming standard.
For dimensional details see Table 31 page 25.
Length standard length available for AS68kg rail is 25m, for all
other rails standard lengths are 12.19 m, 13.72 m and 27.5 m.
Drilling rails can be supplied drilled or undrilled.
Head Hardened Rails
Where rail wear, plastic flow of the rail head, corrugation or rail
fatigue defects are reducing rail life it is recommended that OneSteel
head hardened rail be specified. Available test data indicate a
doubling of rail life will occur. Head hardened rail is available in
50 kg/m, 60 kg/m and 68 kg/m sizes.
Some situations where heavier and more expensive crane
rail is specified can also be handled with high strength head
hardened rail.

* 300PLUS replaced Grade 250 as the base grade for these sections in 1994.
300PLUS hot rolled sections are produced to exceed the minimum requirements of AS/NZS 3679.1-300.
Notes
1. For 300PLUS sections the tensile strength (fu) is 440 MPa.
2.

For Grade 350 sections the tensile strength (fu) is 480 MPa.

*300PLUS replaced Grade 250 as the base grade for 125x125x8 equal angles and larger in 1994.
300PLUS replaced Grade 250 as the base grade for 100x100x12 equal angles and smaller in 1997.
300PLUS hot rolled sections are produced to exceed the minimum requirements of AS/NZS 3679.1-300.

Notes 1. For 300PLUS sections the tensile strength (fu) is 440 MPa.
2. For Grade 350 sections the tensile strength (fu) is 480 MPa.

Notes
1. The use of sulfide modification steel making techniques for these grades is
permitted.
2. Grain refining elements, ie aluminium and titanium, may be added, provided that
the total content does not exceed 0.15%. Limits are for total or soluble aluminium.
3. The following elements may be present to the limits stated, subject to a maximum
total of 1.00%:
(a) Copper
0.50%
(b) Nickel
0.50%
(c) Chromium
0.30%
(d) Molybdenum

4. For grade 300PLUS, the following are not considered as micro-alloying elements:
(a) Titanium
0.040% maximum
(b) Niobium
0.020% maximum
(c) Vanadium
0.030% maximum
(d) Niobium plus vanadium 0.030% maximum

6. Micro-alloying elements are not permitted in grade 300 except for thicknessess
greater than or equal to 15mm, where the following apply:
(a) the maximum combined micro-alloying element content is 0.15%
(b) where micro-alloying elements are used, the percentage of each element is to
be shown on the certificates.
7. For grade 350, micro-alloying elements niobium, vanadium and titanium may be
added, provided that their total combined content does not exceed 0.15%.

Notes (apply to tables 36 and 37)


1. For a section, the term thickness refers to the nominal thickness of the part from which the sample is taken.
2. So is the cross-sectional area of the test piece before testing.
3. For precise details of properties reference should be made to the latest edition of AS/NZS 3679.1:1996 or the latest OneSteel specification.
4. 300PLUS steel is produced to exceed the latest requirements for grade 300 in AS/NZS 3679.1.

*The recommendations are based on the criterion that, at the maximum


dimensions, a hardness of 50 HRC can be achieved in the centre of the
quenched section.
The actual properties obtained are dependent on both grade and heat
treatment process control. As OneSteel has no control over the
springmakers heat treatment process, the above recommendations cannot
be guaranteed. However, springmakers with efficient heat treatment facilities
will be able to achieve a hardness value of 50 HRC as recommended.
