A1018 High Strength Low Alloy Steel Plate

Alro stocks A1018 grade 80 / A656 grade 80 high-strength low-alloy (Low carbon steel) (HSLA) plate - a type of alloy steel that provides better mechanical properties or greater resistance to corrosion than carbon steel. High Strength Sheet Steels have higher strength properties along with improved formability, weldability and/or atmospheric corrosion resistance than normally obtained from conventional carbon sheet steels. These desirable properties are obtained through selected chemical composition and controlled mill processing.
A1018 is often selected for demanding structural applications where strength to weight ratios are important.

Alro Also Stocks:
1018 Hot Rolled Steel Round Bar

Grade 80:
Tensile :   90ksi (Min)
Yield :      80ksi (Min)
Elongation :   12% min in 2"

General Characteristics:
  • High strength
  • Excellent mechanical properties
  • Low carbon steel alloy
Typical Uses
A1018 gr. 80/A656 gr. 80's excellent strength to weight ratio make it a great solution in structural applications where weight is an issue. Because they are stronger than mild steel, they can provide high strength in thinner sections at a lower weight.
