A572 Structural, Carbon & HSLA Steel Plate - Chapel SteelA high-strength low-alloy steel plate that is utilized in a variety of structural applications. This specification is produced in Grades 42, 50, 55, 60 & 65, the grades representing the yield strength.
Carbon A572 (ASTM A572) is a low alloy, high strength steel, popular for its strength. With a better strength to weight ratio, A572 steel is a natural step up from A36 when more strength is needed. The increased strength of A572 plate does not compromise the steels ductility and weldability. A572 plate can therefore be formed, welded, and machined.
