Steel Product Selector by Grade
How do I Select the Most Appropriate Steel Grade?
- Corrosion Resistance
- Recommended uses
Strength is measured as a force per unit area to stretching (Yield Strength) or breaking (Tensile Strength, in kilo(1000)-pounds per square inch (ksi), or Mega-Pascal (MPa). 1 ksi = 6.9 MPa
Formability is how much you can stretch the surface before cracks appear, measured as the % Elongation.
We will be glad to personally guide you through the selection process.
To explore on your own, Commercial Steel is a good place to start. It is a low carbon steel that exhibits good strength coupled with formability. It is easy to machine and fabricate and can be securely welded. From there, you can see how improved properties – stronger, more bendable, more resistant to corrosion – will be an even better match for you.
Not sure which steel grade is right for your specific purposes? Are you looking for alternatives that are more budget-friendly or readily available? Our team would love to talk with you and create a solution that fits your specific need!
