Yonhap reported that Hyundai Steel successfully developed an H-beam that is highly resistant to both heat and earthquakes. The new product can withstand 36 kg of weight per 1 square millimeter and has a yield strength of at least 67 percent at 600 degrees C, according to the company. Other H-beams have a yield strength of under 30 percent at 350 degrees C.

Hyundai Steel has been developing high-resistance steel from 2016 as one of the projects in a state-endorsed program to find new industrial materials. Full-fledged development is due in 2020.

H-beams are a key product for the steelmaker, which was the first in the country in 2005 to develop an anti-quake version.
