The steel plate under ASTM A285 ranges in three grades, A, B and C, most common use is ASTM A285 Grade C plates. Which shall be made by killed, semi-killed, capped or rimmed steel practices at manufacturer's option. For killed carbon steels only refer to below ASTM specifications. A 299/A 299M:Carbon steel manganese silicon pressure vessel plates.
ASTM A36 Steel Plate - ASTM A36 Steel WarehouseASTM A36 steel is a common grade of low carbon steel with good strength and good formability. It is easy to machine, form, drill, machine, punch, and shear. ASTM A36 steel plate has many uses including ships, buildings, and bridges.

The comparison between ASTM A283 grade C and A36 steel is basically identified through the quantity of manganese in chemical composition as well as carbon equivalent (CEV).. A36 steel CEV = 0.25+0.4/24 = 0.266% and ASTM A283 grade C CEV = 0.24+0.4/24+0.9/6 = 0.406%. As a consequence, the carbon equivalent of ASTM A283 grade C steel is higher than A36 steel.
