Plate

Plate

A combination of increased strength, corrosion resistance, and machine-ability makes plate a widely used product. Plate is heat treatable, resists cracking due to stress, is easy to weld and machine, but is limited in formability. Plate is ideal for structural framing, base plates, gussets, motorcycle & automotive parts, etc.

Carbon Stainless Aluminum Alloy Brass Copper

Carbon

GradeDescription
1045Medium carbon steel that can be forged satisfactorily. Most common shafting steel.
A36Low carbon steel that exhibits good strength coupled with formability. It is easy to machine and fabricate and can be securely welded.
A514High strength steel, which is quenched and tempered with a yield strength of 100,000 PSI.
A516Medium carbon alloy used in pressure vessels and boilers. Contains manganese, phosphorus, sulfur and silicon at the highest levels allowed by the ASTM, to produce the strongest carbon steel plates specified by the ASTM.
A572Covers the standard requirements for Grades 42, 50, 55, 60, and 65 for high-strength, low-alloy, columbium-vanadium structural steel shapes, plates and bars for applications in bolted, riveted and welded structures in bridges and buildings.
AR 200High strength, low-alloy steel. Abrasion resistant. Made in the as-rolled condition.
AR 400 FQuenched and tempered through hardened wear-resistant grades of abrasion. Used for high impact.
AR 500Standard specification published by the ASTM for cold-formed welded and seamless carbon steel structural tubing in round, square, and rectangular shapes.
C1045Medium carbon, medium tensile steel supplied as forged or normalized. This steel shows good strength, toughness and wear resistance.

Stainless

GradeDescription
304Among the most commonly used grades across the industry, it offers resistance to corrosion. Has good formability and can be readily welded by all methods.
304LExtra low carbon avoids harmful carbide precipitation due to welding. Same corrosion resistance as 304 with lower mechanical properties.
316Better pitting and corrosion resistance than 304, as well as higher strength at elevated temperatures. 316 can be used for valves, marine equipment, pumps, and chemical equipment.
316LExtra low carbon avoids harmful carbide precipitation due to welding. Same excellent corrosion resistance as 316. It exhibits the same high strength, toughness and workability as 304 alloys.

Aluminum

GradeDescription
1100Commercially pure aluminum. Soft and ductile, has excellent workability and formability, and high thermal and electrical conductivities. Non-heat treatable.
2024One of the most commonly used high strength aluminum alloys. Low corrosion resistance. Commonly used when good strength-to-weight ratio is desired.
3003Most widely used of all aluminum alloys. Excellent corrosion resistance and good workability. Added manganese to increase strength 20% more than 1xxx grade.
5052Highest strength alloy of the more non-heat treatable grades. Good resistance to marine atmosphere and salt water corrosion. Good workability.
5454Highest strength alloy of the more non-heat treatable grades. Good resistance to marine atmosphere and salt water corrosion. Good workability.
6061Heat treatable, structural alloy with medium strength and good weldability, formability, machinability, and relatively good corrosion resistance.
7075Highest strength in heat treatable alloys. Adequate machinability and improved stress corrosion control. Good for highly stressed structural parts.
Cast AluminumCast aluminum is a specific metal that has gone through a process known as casting. It is created when methods such as die casting, mold casting, or sand casting are used to temper the aluminum for use in creating components for many different types of products. This form of aluminum is used for a number of items around the house, as well as machinery and other products that are necessary to the manufacturing of a wide range of goods and services.

Alloy

GradeDescription
4130General purpose alloy. Offers good strength and toughness for moderately stressed parts.
4140Medium carbon steel that is widely used for general purposes. Good hardenability, strength, toughness, wear resistance, and ductility.
4340Highly alloyed steel. Used in heavy-duty conditions and for heavily stressed parts.
8620General purpose alloy, it is the most widely used of all case hardening alloys.

Brass

GradeDescription
260Wide range of applications. High ductility. Low to fair soldering and brazing capabilities.

Copper

GradeDescription
110Broad range of uses. Excellent hot and cold forming characteristics. Poor machinability rating.
