ASTM A786 is Recommended for
Flooring, stairways, transportation equipment, and general structural purposes.
While it is generally provided as-rolled, floor plate also may be provided heat-treated. Rolled floor plates have raised figures at regular intervals on one surface of the plate.
We will be glad to help you select the exact grade of ASTM A786 steel plate for your needs.
ASTM A786 Steel Plate Specifications
- Strength, Yield Strength ksi (MPa), Tensile Strength ksi (MPa): Basic 60 (400)
- Formability: % Elongation: Low for some grades, 14-21%
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 – Low carbon, medium manganese, silicon, alloyed with copper, Chromium, Nickel, and Molybdenum
- Cost – Higher.
Good when thinner or stronger steels will add value.
