ASTM A36 is a low-carbon steel alloy that is widely used in the construction industry due to its excellent mechanical properties. It has a minimum yield strength of 36,000 psi and a minimum tensile strength of 58,000 psi, making it a very strong material. It also has good weldability and formability, making it easy to work with in various applications. Additionally, it has good corrosion resistance and can be used in outdoor environments without requiring additional protection.

The normal use cases for ASTM A36 include construction and structural applications, such as bridges, buildings, and machinery. It is also commonly used in the manufacturing of metal products, such as tanks, pipes, and poles. Its excellent mechanical properties make it a popular choice for a wide range of applications that require strength and durability.

At, ASTM A36 is available in various forms, including hot rolled steel plate, angle, channel, round, square and flat/rectangle bar products. Carbon steel A36 products are all available in custom dimensions you can specify in your cart to save time and money and for an ideal finish.
