ASTM A871 Steel Plate Specifications

  • Strength, Yield Strength ksi (MPa), Tensile Strength ksi (MPa): Grade A: Strong, 75 (515)
  • Formability: % Elongation: Basic, 17%
    For better formability consider Drawing Steel
  • Joining – Fair
    Design and welding must account for stresses.
  • Corrosion Resistance – The atmospheric corrosion resistance of this steel in most environments is significantlyly better than that of carbon structural steels with or without copper addition. When properly exposed to the atmosphere, this steel can be used bare (unpainted) for many uses.
  • Chemistry Low carbon, medium manganese, silicon, alloyed with copper, Chromium, Nickel, and Molybdenum
    Cost Higher.
    Good when thinner or stronger steels will add value.
