Hot Roll Plate – A588/A242
A588- is a high strength alloy with outstanding resistance to atmospheric corrosion. This alloy is weldable, formidable and tough. This metal has the ability to achieve strength and toughness required from lighter material. It has advantages over other steels by its ‘weathering’ ability giving the material atmospheric protection and prolonging the life of the metal. It has a tensile strength of at least 70,000 psi, yield strength of at least 50,000 psi in steel up to 4? thick. Elongation is 16% in 8? and 19% in 2?. Some common applications are trucks, cranes, bridges, structures, etc.
Sizes from 3/16″ – 3 1/2″ (96′ x 240′)
