ASTM A242 Steel

ASTM A242 weather resistant steel plate is hot selling. Below is the detail of ASTM A242 Plates. ASTM A242 plate belongs to a high strength low-alloy structural steel with improved atmospheric corrosion resistance. ASTM A242 steel is widely used in structural applications such as bridges and buildings. This specification is normally applicable to steel plates through one-half inch in thickness.

ASTM A242 Grade: ASTM A242 Type 1 steel,ASTM A242 Type 2 steel

Pls send RFQ to for steel newly price.

Mechanical Properties of ASTM A242 Steel Plates :

Tensile: 70 ksi min (3/4 and under), 67 ksi min (3/4- 1.5) 63 ksi min (Over 1.5-4)

Yield: 50 ksi min (3/4 and under), 46 ksi min (3/4- 1.5) 42 ksi min (Over 1.5-4)

Elongation: 16% min in 8in. 19% min in 2 in in. (for plates wider than 24in.)

ASTM A242 Plates Characteristics:

The atmospheric corrosion resistance of A242 is substantially better than that of carbon steels such as A36 and A572GR50 steel with or without copper addition. When properly exposed to the atmosphere, A242 is suitable for many applications in the unpainted condition. ASTM 242 is a weathering steel which develops a natural rust patina which protects the steel from exposure.
