Carbon A588 is a high strength, low-alloy (HSLA) formable steel ideal for machining and welding. The addition of copper to A588 plate allows this material to withstand atmospheric corrosion four times greater than general purpose plate while providing the strength A588 / A606 / A242 Structural, Carbon & HSLA Steel Plate ASTM A588 A high-strength, low-alloy steel plate utilized primarily in structural applications such as bridges and buildings. This grade is designed for projects requiring atmospheric corrosion resistance. Its advantage over A572 50 is its weathering ability.
Certain grades require special welding techniques. 4. SEEK ADVICE BEFORE SPECIFYING WELDING DETAILS ON GRADES HPS70W, HPS100, AND HPS100W. Weld the same as ASTM A588 steel. 3. ASTM A252. Grade 2 (35 ksi min yield) a. Steel Pipe Piles . b. Use routine welding procedures. 4. ASTM A441 (42 to 50 ksi min yield) ASTM A572 Steel - Ultra-High Strength - CopperloyWelding wire for A572 Grade 50 that is used has a yield higher than the material. With stronger steels the welding wire yield strength begins to be closer to that of the steel. This makes the welds much more critical and provide less safety factor of the welds. As the steel increases in Yield and is designed as close to the safety factor as ASTM A588 - SSABASTM A588. The ASTM A588 specification is the Standard Specification for High-Strength Low-Alloy Structural Steel , up to 50 ksi Minimum Yield Point, with Atmospheric Corrosion Resistance for applications where strength and durability are needed. The required ASTM G101 Corrosion Resistance Index must be 6.0.

Features of Corten A A588 Steel Plate Corrosion-resistant, high-strength, low-alloy steel plate. Available in three grades:A, B and K. Often referred to as Corten or Weathering steel. Ideal for welding, riveting or bolting in construction applications, primarily for bridges and buildings. ELEVATED TEMPERATURE PROPERTIES OF A588 is made between A588 weathering steel, used widely for bridges, and another material whose chemical composition and mechanical properties allows it to be classified by ASTM as both an older weathering steel (A242), a steel commonly used in building construction (A992), and also a non-weathering steel used for bridges (A709 Grade 50).
