Specific Uses Include:
Whenever the value of the strength-to-weight-to-cost ratio (100ksi) is a high priority. Steel Warehouse was instrumental in bringing some of the first 100 ksi yield steel to the US market. Working with a valued supplier, we developed both applications and markets for what was then a “unicorn” product. Over the past 25 years, we and our supplying mill have refined the grade and processing parameters, resulting in the reliable product available today.
- Rail Cars
- RV Frames
- School Buses
- Fire Trucks
- Earth Moving Equipment
- Vehicle Chassis Members
- Truck/Trailer Frames
- Telescoping Crane Booms
- Agricultural Equipment
- Refuse/Hauling Vehicles
Buyers and engineers now can profit from the design opportunities of a new product allowing them to lighten current 100ksi or upgrade their 80ksi applications.
Excellent cold formability, bending a guaranteed 1.5t inside bend radii in contrast to most A514 suppliers 2.0t radii
Grade 100 Steel can be welded at room temperatures without preheating. It is appropriate for conventional or modern welding methods with low tendency to hardening and cold cracking.
Aside from its high strength, light weight features, Grade 100 Steel is temper passed to assure flatness during processing and to provide a quality enhanced surface for appearance and finishing.
Grade 100 Steel readily meets the most demanding mechanical property tolerances through the temper passing of material to eliminate coil set while ensuring flatness and dimensional stability.
Grade 100 Steel is a high strength low alloy (HSLA) steel containing low amounts of carbon (.10 max), phosphorous (.025) and sulfur (.006) resulting in a cleaner, more homogeneous material.
Very competitively priced compared with A514 material. Combine the qualities and benefits of Grade 100 Carbon Steel and you'll enjoy an unprecedented cost-value.
