Grade 100 Steel

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.

  • Formability
    Excellent cold formability, bending a guaranteed 1.5t inside bend radii in contrast to most A514 suppliers 2.0t radii

  • Weldability
    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.

  • Surface
    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.

  • Mechanical Properties
    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.

  • Chemical Composition
    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.

  • Price/Cost Value
    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.
