astm a242 steel plate
The steel plate under ASTM A242 standard also called the weathering steel plate, referred to the semi-killed or fully killed steel. It has good atmospheric corrosion resistance so the steel could be used in a lot of working environments.
ASTM A242 is specification for carbon and low alloy with high strength structural steel plate. It covers high strength steel profiles, plates and bars for welded, riveted, or bolted constructions. It is the typical weathering steel and also known by Corten A Steel. ASTM A242 - SSABThe ASTM A242 specification is the Standard Specification for High-Strength Low- Alloy Structural Steel for structural members where weight savings and atmospheric corrosion resistance are important. Mechanical property requirements are specified by product type (Plates and Bars, and Structural Shapes) and by thickness.
ASTM A242 is a high strength low-alloy structural steel specification with improved atmospheric corrosion resistance and higher temperature resistance. This specification is normally applicable to steel plates through one-half inch in thickness.
