General specifications for plates, shapes, hollow sections, sheet, sheet piling cold-formed channels and bars used in construction. SPECIFICATIONS ROUND STRUCTURAL TUBING STRENGTH LEVELS Grade C 50W Yield Strength 46,000 psi min.
Structural Tubing or Hollow Structural Sections (HSS) are high-strength welded carbon steel tube used as structural members for construction applications and a variety of manufactured products. We produce round, square and rectangular shapes to meet both A500 B/C and A1085 ASTM specifications. We then go a step further to exceed your expectations for customer service

The preferred material specification for round HSS is ASTM A500 Grade C (F y = 46 ksi, Fu = 62 ksi). Note that a new standard, ASTM A1085 (see sidebar “New (and Recently New) Things”), seeks to replace it. The availability and cost effective-ness of round HSS in grades other than ASTM A500 Grade C should be confirmed prior to specification.
Impact AR500F Steel Plate. Impact 500 steel plate has a surface hardness of between 470-540 HBW (aim is 500) and is designed for use in the manufacturing of medium-duty service vehicles and field use. Examples include medium to large transit vehicles, commercial construction and hauling. An optimal-strength steel for targets using magnum rounds.
Steel Definitions. A36 = The most common used hot-rolled carbon constructional steel is A36. It is easy to weld and has a minimum yield strength of 36k psi. Used in multiple applications like bridges, buildings, marine applications, and other structures where welding is used.
Diamond Plate, also known as Checker Plate, Floor Plate, Tread Plate, and Safety Plate is a flat metal or steel plate with a raised pattern of lines or elongated diamonds on the surface of one side. These differing metal plates are generally composed of Carbon steel, Stainless Steel or Aluminum. A786 is the Standard grade of steel diamond plate.
Comparing Steel Plate Grades. four grades of carbon steel plates for general applications, such as manufacturing storage tanks and low pressure, It has a minimum yield strength of 50 ksi and a minimum tensile strength of 70 ksi. Popular examples include the coating on the U.S. Steel Tower in Pittsburgh and the Barclays Center in New York.
Farwest carries an extensive A500 grade C Structural Round, Square, and Rectangular Tube inventory with wall thicknesses ranging from .120 to .625 in a variety of lengths of 20′, 24′, 40′, and 48′. Farwest can competitively source custom lengths or longer lengths from a network of domestic mills quickly to minimize waste. Typical Physicals

Cold-formed tubing ASTM A500 Grade B Hot formed tubing ASTM A501 Hot rolled steel plate, coil and strip, ASTM A570/M, Grade 36 A36 low carbon (mild) steel plate advantages and usage. This steel plate has very good yield strength that is it has yield strength of 36,000 psi and it also has a high allowable bending stress of 22,000 psi.
Since ASTM A500 is a structural specification, round pipe HSS produced to this specification is a fit for applications being used in structural applications and general construction use. The tolerances of A500 are tighter than those of A53, therefore the A500 round

Yield Strength – 36,000 PSI minimum Tensile Strength – 58 – 80,000 PSI ASTM A-500 GRADE C The most common U.S. standard specification for cold-formed, welded carbon steel Hollow Structural Sections (HSS).
filler metal suggestions “match” the base metal properties; that is, the yield and tensile strength are expected to meet or exceed the minimum specified properties of the steel. Matching filler metal is typically required for complete joint penetration groove welds in tension. However, fillet welds loaded in shear seldom require
ASTM A36 Steel Properties, Modulus of Elasticity, Yield
ASTM A36 steel is one of the most widely used carbon structural steels, although the carbon content of A36 material is maximum 0.29%, it is considered to be the mild steel (content of carbon ≤ 0.25%). A36 mild steel is often compared to SAE AISI 1018, A36 carbon steel is commonly hot rolled, while 1018 steel is commonly cold rolled.
