ASTM A285 Grade C

2.We supplies steel under the ASTM A285 specification.  The pressure vessel steel is intended for use in non critical pressure vessel applications. The ASTM A285 specification covers low to intermediate tensile strength carbon steel for use in non–critical pressure vessel applications.

3.The plate is used as a weldable material in the fabrication of pressure vessels and industrial boilers using fusion welding i.e. the joining of the material by melting them together to form one. The plate is offered at a maximum thickness of 50mm for all grades to ensure internal robustness.

4.As ASTM A285 does not promote high tensile strength, it is used commonly in the fabrication of storage tanks and low pressure temperature controlled vessels.

5.We offers the most common grade, ASTM 285 Grade C, in a variety of sizes and thicknesses, and is available as ex–stock or directly shipped from the mill. As with all our steels, our plates come with mill test certification and stampings and we can arrange for a variety of tests to be performed on the material if specified.

6.Alternatively, the customer can arrange testing via a third party testing house.
