ASTM A572-50 Angle

Characteristics

ASTM A572-50 is a high-strength, low-alloy (HSLA) columbium-vanadium steel. It has a higher yield and tensile strength, as compared to ASTM A36.  The higher tensile strength of A572-50 allows reduction of section thickness and weight when manufacturing parts, therefore lowering the overall weight of the part. It is easy to weld, form, and machine when using appropriate techniques.

ASTM A572 is also available in grades 42, 55, 60 and 65.

Applications

A572-50 is used in transportation and other applications that require increased strength at a lower weight. For transportation operations, it provides added payload capacity with a lower increase in equipment weight, reducing operating costs. A572-50 is also used in the construction of bridges and buildings.
