What is ASTM A242 material?

ASTM A242 material is a low alloy structural steel that has high strength. It comes with improved resistance to corrosion and high temperatures. ASTM A242 plate is usually supplied in normalized/ quenched and tempered condition.

The ASTM A242 strips can be found in the Industrial air pollution stacks, water tanks, etc. The light weight ASTM A242 coil can also be found in air ducts present in pollution controlling equipment.
