What is ASTM A871 grade 60 ?

ASTM A871 Grade 60 is a high strength structural steel that shows improved atmospheric corrosion resistance. This low alloy ASTM A871 grade 60 steel plate material can form a protective rust like layer on the surface when exposed to weather elements. Thus, ASTM A871 grade 60 plates do not need additional coating.

What are the ASTM A871 gr 60 steel plate delivery conditions?
  • Hot rolled ASTM A871 gr 60 structural steel plates are formed at high temperatures and then cooled naturally.
  • The plates can undergo a normalization process to refine the grain structure and improve the mechanical properties. The process involves heating the plates above the critical temperature and then cooling them in still air.
  • ASTM A871 gr. 60 plates can also be delivered in quenched and tempered (Q&T) condition. Herein, they are heat treated by quenching in a liquid medium and tempering to achieve the desired combination of high strength & toughness.
  • They can be annealed to reduce internal stresses and improve machinability.

As a stockist, we deliver ASTM A871 gr 60 structural steel plate in Mumbai that has been reviewed and finished to specifications.

Compare ASTM A871 grade 60 and 65
  • Grade 65 is slightly stronger than Grade 60, as the former has min yield strength of 450 Mpa and for the latter, it is 415 MPa.
  • While they have overall similar chemical composition, slight differences may exist between the two grades to achieve desired mechanical properties.
  • ASTM A871 HSLA steel grade 60 plates is more widely available than grade 65 plates.

However, they both possess good weldability and are used for similar outdoor applications
