ArcelorMittal is launching the extended version of its Orange book, an essential aid for engineers in the design of steel buildings and structures.
Already including data of ArcelorMittal Europe – Long Products’ structural sections, the ArcelorMittal Orange book is now completed with information about ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products for cold formed and welded sections.
What is the Orange book?
The Orange book is an online database for engineers and steel structure designers. It allows them to select the best profile shape and steel grade according to the construction specific architecture and requirements. Thanks to the Orange book and its multiple load tables, it is possible to optimize structural calculations for all type of buildings (tertiary, commercial, industrial, residential…) as well as for bridges in order to:
The Orange book is part of ArcelorMittal’s digitalisation strategy which involves the creation of specific internet tools for customers, engineers, fabricators and contractors.

ArcelorMittal Europe is the undisputable leader to deliver high strength steels for construction applications.
HISTAR® steels are structural grades with a low alloy content, combining high strength, good toughness and superior weldability. HISTAR® grades are delivered in accordance with the European Technical Assessment ETA-10/0156 and are available with minimum yield strengths of 355 or 460 MPa. When compared to standard structural steels, HISTAR® grades feature improved guaranteed mechanical characteristics.
For structural applications, ArcelorMittal offers a full range of coatings for Construction Steels & High Strength Low Alloy steels according to EN 10346 (see catalogue sheet):
Coating types can be adapted according to the environment:
