ProFormance Metals – The Worlds largest stockholder for ROPT510 Tube
ROPT510® is a Roll Over Protection Tube that has been created to serve clubman motorsport and other projects that may need to meet MSA regulations.
It has specifically been designed by ProFormance for use in Roll cages, Roll over hoops, chassis construction, suspension componants and motorsport preparation applications.
ROPT510 is a carbon based cold drawn seamless with high strength, easy to form and great welding properties.
- Tensile Strength : 510 N/mm2 minimum
- 0.2% Yield Strength : 370 N/mm2 minimum
- Elongation : 25% minimum.
The figures for ROPT510 exceed the MSA bluebook regulations and is used by the FIA for use in their roll over, crash impact and safety cell tests.
Where the ROPT510 excels against other cold drawn seamless tubes (CDS) is that it contains both a high tensile and yield strength, and also high elongation properties for forming.
Generic CDS such as CFS360NBK, CFS3BK, E235+N o r E235+C will only contain one of these properties, which means compromising a loss in strength or a loss in formability in comparison.
With ROPT510 tube becoming increasingly popular, it has found its way into many applications of Motorsport, but hasn’t stopped there. The tube can be found in Military and Defence applications for roll over protection,and also in the construction of Armoured vehicles
It is also ideal for use in general engineering applications where strength was required without the cost of exotic high tensile materials.
It has been used in the production of films. Click here to find out more
