SCHEDULE (OF A PIPE)

Schedule (of a pipe) / (fr: Cédule, d’un tuyau): The term used to describe the thickness of a pipe.

SEAMLESS TUBE

Seamless tube (fr: Tube sans soudure): A tubular product that does not have any welding seam. This tube is manufactured by hot-working steel or, in some cases, by subsequently cold-finishing the hot-worked tubular product to create the desired shape, dimensions, and properties.

SHEARING

Shearing (fr: Cisaillement): The action of cutting by two blades along a straight line to separate metal. Machines used for shearing are called squaring shears. During this operation, a narrow strip of metal is deformed to the point where it fractures at the surfaces in contact with the blades. The fracture then propagates inward and provides complete separation. Shearing is used for producing blanks.

SHEET

Sheet (fr: Feuille): Wide, flat-rolled steel. Generally, steel that is less than 3 mm thick is considered sheet. See also Plate.

SMLS

SMLS (fr: SMLS): The abbreviation that stands for Seamless.

STAINLESS STEEL

Stainless steel (fr: Acier inoxydable): A type of metal that is more resistant to rust, corrosion and staining than regular steel, the oxidation is not apparent at eyesight. It is an alloy of iron and carbon mixed with elements such as chromium (makes it more resistant to rust), nickel, molybdenum, silicon, aluminum . Stainless steel materials are often used in construction and tools.

STRUCTURAL STEEL

Structural steel (fr: Acier de construction): A category of steel used for making construction materials in a variety of shapes. Most common structural shapes are: I-Beams, Angles, Channels, Bars, Rods etc.
