What is ASTM A 36 steel plate? ASTM A36 steel is a standard steel alloy that is a common structural steel in the world. The A36 standard was established by the standards organization ASTM International. ASTM A36 covers the chemical and mechanical requirements for carbon steel shapes, plates, and bars of structural quality for use in riveted, bolted, or welded construction of bridges, buildings, and general structural purposes. Bolts manufactured from A36 steel include ASTM specifications A307 and  F1554 Grade 36  as well as SAE J429 Grade 2.

ASTM A36 Steel Plate for Sale

A36 steel in plates, bars, and shapes with a thickness of less than 8 in (203 mm) has a minimum yield strength of 36,000 psi (250 MPa) and ultimate tensile strength of 58,000–80,000 psi (400–550 MPa). Plates thicker than 8 in have a 32,000 psi (220 MPa) yield strength and the same ultimate tensile strength. The Electrical Resistance of A36 is 0.0000153 ohm/cm. A36 bars and shapes maintain their ultimate strength up to 650°F.
