ASTM A36 Angle

Characteristics

ASTM A36 angle is one of the most widely used carbon steels by the construction industry. It is a low-cost material compared to specialty steels and exhibits the strength required for structural applications. In addition, it is weldable, formable, and machinable. Galvanizing the steel increases its resistance to corrosion.

Applications

ASTM A36 steel angle is used in a range of industrial applications, including:

  • Machinery and Equipment Frames  (Braces and Corners)
  • Transportation Frames and Corners
  • Support frames that require welding, riveting or bolting on bridges and buildings
  • General structural use in construction
