What is ASTM A588 material?

ASTM A588 is a specification for high strength structural steel. A588 material can be used for making plates found in construction and structural engineering. It is also called weathering steel as it can withstand atmospheric corrosion.

ASTM A588 strips can be used in outdoor structures where it is exposed to harsh environmental conditions. It forms a protective rust like layer on the surface, which slows down the corrosion process. The ASTM A588 coil material is also known for its high tensile strength, durability and aesthetic appeal.

What is the difference between ASTM A588 and A36?
  • A588 steel sheet is more corrosion resistant compared to A36.
  • The A588 weathering steel forms a protective layer when exposed to the elements which is not the case with A36.
  • ASTM A588 grades have higher tensile & yield strength compared to A36.
