Regular quality .33 max. carbon
ASTM A36/AASME SA36
Carbon steel plates are used in structural application and produced from ignots made by the open hearth, the basic oxygen, or the electric furnace processes. It is readily formed and welded, using conventional methods.

Nivert Metal Supply Inc has a variety of plates in stock that can be ordered and delivered to your location, if you are within our service area.
In addition to plate thicknesses listed, Nivert Metal Supply Inc also stocks 2 1/4”, 2 1/2”, 3”, 3 1/4”, 3 1/2”, 4”, 4 1/2”, 5”, and 6” plates.
High strength, low alloy (HSLA) steels are basically low carbon steels to which have been added small amounts of such alloying elements, such as chromium, nickel, molybdenum, vanadium, zirconium, copper, and columbium. The effect of these alloy additions is to raise the strength to weight ratio of the steel in the “as rolled” condition, and at the same time, maintain weldability and formability. In A242 and A588, where copper is added, these steels also have 5 to 8 times more resistance to atmospheric corrosion than regular carbon steel, and generally increased resistance to impact and abrasion. Also, painted surfaces have a far greater life than the painted surfaces of mild steel.

Nivert Metal Supply Inc’s abrasion resisting plates are used in making scraper blades, grain and feed mill liners and spouts, concrete mixers, conveyors, hammer mill parts, drag lines equipment, coal and gravel screens and chutes, sand, gravel, cement and clay handling machinery. Abrasion resisting plates will, in most cases, outlast ordinary steel by a big margin and compare favorably with high-priced alloy castings. They can be machined, drilled, and punched and will also withstand a certain amount of bending and forming. Welding is not recommended.
