ASTM A656 Steel Plate

Recommended for 

Hot-Rolled Structural Steel, High-Strength Low-Alloy Plate with Improved Formability.

Three types and five strength grades of high-strength low-alloy, hot rolled structural steel plate for use in truck frames, rackets, crane booms, rail cars, and similar uses.

These steels have improved formability. They are normally furnished in the as-rolled. We will be glad to help you select the exact grade for your needs.

Grades:

  • 50
  • 60

Specifications

  • Strength, Yield Strength ksi (MPa), Tensile Strength ksi (MPa): Strong, 60-110 (415-760)
  • Formability: % Elongation: Improved, 15-23%
    For better formability consider Drawing Steel
  • Joining – Fair
    Design and welding must account for stresses.
  • Corrosion Resistance – Good   
    Galvanizing will slow corrosion.   For longer life in harsh chemical conditions, consider Galvanized or Coated Steel
  • Chemistry Medium carbon, high manganese and silicon
  • Cost Higher
    Good when thinner or stronger steels will add value.
