  • 5052-H32 – This is the highest strength alloy of the more common non-heat treatable grades. Good resistance to marine atmosphere and salt water corrosion. Excellent workability.

 

  • 6061-T6 – A heat treatable grade used in a wide variety of products from truck frames to screw machine products and structural components. A liberal bending radius is required when forming. Non-bendable-dull finish.

 

Floor Plate

Floor Plate (a786 – CS and A36) – This specification covers carbon, low-alloy, high strength low-alloy, and alloy steel hot-rolled floor plates for flooring, stairways, transportation equipment, and general structural purposes. While it is generally provided in the as-rolled condition, floor plate also may be provided in the heat-treated condition, depending on the material specification. Rolled floor plates have raised figures at regular intervals on one surface of the plate.

Plate 5Structural Grade
  • ASTM A-36 is a structural quality carbon steel for use in welded, bolted or riveted construction of bridges and buildings, and for general structural purposes. Minimum yield strength of 36 ksi (250 MPa) is required to meet the requirements of A36. ASTM A36 plate is used in a variety of applications, which include, but are not limited to: railroad cars, trucks, agriculture equipment, trailers, construction equipment, buildings and bridges.
High Strength/Low Alloy

High-strength low-alloy steel (HSLA) is a type of alloy steel that provides greater resistance to corrosion than carbon steel. HSLA steels are not made to meet a specific chemical composition but rather to specific mechanical properties.
