Carbon Steel Plates

What is Carbon Steel Plates?

Considered to be the most economical steel grade, the Low Carbon has outstanding ductility and toughness. Since low carbon steel sheets or also referred to as Low Temperature Carbon Steel are soft, they are best used for low temperature applications.

On the other hand, Medium Carbon Steel has much better mechanical properties as compared to low carbon steel, due to the performance of heat treatment followed by quenching and tempering carried out. Frequently utilized in applications involving vessels, heat exchangers, oil and gas pipelines, as well as underground pipelines Killed Carbon or fully deoxidized steel sheets, have no oxygen content in them, thus eliminating room for corrosion.

Deoxidation of Fully Killed Carbon Steel coils is achieved by the addition of either silicon, aluminium, or other deoxidizing agents to the molten alloy. Black Carbon strips are produced from non-galvanized steel unlike regular carbon steels, which use galvanized steels to prevent corrosion.

What is ASTM A283 and A516 Sheet?

Components such as plates, sheets, coils and strips produced in accordance with both the specifications are to undergo tension tests to determine their mechanical properties like tensile and yield strength along with Rockwell hardness and elongation. While ASTM A283 produced sheets envelopes four grades of structural quality carbon steel, the ASTM A516 CS sheets are designed with the intention of being used in pressure vessels that are welded. The four grades of the ASTM A516 sheets are particularly noted for their notch toughness.


Which standards represent to CS plates ?

  • ASTM A283 Grade B, A, C – Moreover most fundamental fabric in carbon basic.
  • ASTM A537 – in fusion welded pressure vessels For heat treated carbon plate .
  • ASTM A516 – For boiler, vessel plate.
  • ASTM A36 plates – The most common standards of CS plate
  • ASTM A737 – For boiler, pressure vessels plate of low alloy .
  • ASTM A572 – Where with lower weight, mechanical strength of ASTM A572 plate is higher than A36.
  • ASTM A573 – A kind of structural plate with carbon-manganese-silicon.
