A1018 Plate

A1018 plate

Characteristics

ASTM A1018 plate, a low alloy, low carbon steel, exhibits high strength, high formability and ease of machining. It is easy to weld and produces a secure weld. As a hot-rolled carbon steel, it does not have a smooth surface and is used for products where the surface finish is not critical.

Applications

A1018 plate is used for applications that require high strength and durability, but do not require a high weight-to-strength ratio. Some of the applications include:

  • Pipe and tubing
  • Enclosure and housings
  • Shelving
  • Motor clutch plates
