Stock lengths for ASTM A588 plate are 96" widths X 240" or 480". We can cut to lengths if required. ASTM A588 covers high-strength low-alloy structural steel shapes, plates, and bars for welded, riveted, or bolted construction but intended primarily for use in welded bridges and buildings where savings in weight or added durability are important.
Steel Standards - ASTM InternationalASTM's steel standards are instrumental in classifying, evaluating, and specifying the material, chemical, mechanical, and metallurgical properties of the different types of steels, which are primarily used in the production of mechanical components, industrial parts, and construction elements, as well as other accessories related to them.
When someone needs COR-TEN® they are normally referring to A606 Type 4 or A588. If you want COR-TEN® this will be the best available option. Weathering steels, such as ASTM A588, A242, A606 and COR-TEN® exhibit superior corrosion resistance over regular carbon steel as a result of the development of a protective oxide film on the metals High-Strength Low-Alloy Steels - ASM InternationalThe HSLA steels in sheet or plate form have low carbon content (0.05 to 0.25% C) in order to produce adequate formability and weldability, and they have manganese content up to 2.0%.
