ASTM A36 Angle
Characteristics
ASTM A36 angle is one of the most widely used carbon steels by the construction industry. It is a low-cost material compared to specialty steels and exhibits the strength required for structural applications. In addition, it is weldable, formable, and machinable. Galvanizing the steel increases its resistance to corrosion.
Applications
ASTM A36 steel angle is used in a range of industrial applications, including:

  • Machinery and Equipment Frames  (Braces and Corners)
  • Transportation Frames and Corners
  • Support frames that require welding, riveting or bolting on bridges and buildings
  • General structural use in construction

Sizes
0.5" x 0.5" thru 8" x 8" Thicknesses: 0.125" thru 1"

A529-50 Steel Angle
Characteristics
ASTM A529-50 carbon steel angle is stronger than the more common A36 steel angle and meets 50K minimum yield strength. It is easy to weld, rivet and bolt, as well as machine and fabricate.
Applications
ASTM A529-50 steel is generally used in the construction of buildings, bridges, and other structures for support and structural components.
Sizes of A529-50 Angle

  • 0.5" x 0.5" thru 8" x 8" Thickness: 0.125" thru 1"

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.
