ASTM A871 is Recommended for
Use in tubular structures and poles or in other appropriate uses.
ASTM A871 is a high-Strength Low-Alloy Structural Steel Plate with Atmospheric Corrosion Resistance.
Two grades of ASTM A871 steel plate, 60 and 65, may be provided, as-rolled, normalized or quenched and tempered to meet the specified mechanical requirements.
We will be glad to help you select the exact grade for your needs.
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.
