ASTM A992 and A572 Dual Certified Steel Beam and Channel

Alro stocks ASTM A992 (A572 Grade 50) dual certified beams.  A992 is the most commonly used structural steel in construction and is used to make I beams, Wide Flange, as well as channels, plates, angles and other shapes. It is a structural steel containing small additions of vanadium or columbium, copper, nickel, chrome, and molybdenum, which provide A992 with better material definition. In most cases it can be dual certified to A572 grade 50, exhibiting the high strength and improved weight-to-strength found in A572 carbon steel.
A992 welds easily. It is often used to fabricate structural steel components where high corrosion resistance is required.

  • Tensile Strength - 65 ksi
  • Yield Point - 65 ksi
  • Maximum Yield-to-Tensile Ratio - 0.85


Typical Uses
  • Bridge construction
  • Building frames
  • General construction applications where resistance to corrosion is important
