A1011 CS Type B P&O Steel
Alro stocks A1011/1018 CS Type B P&O (Picked and Oiled) Hot Rolled Sheet. A1011 CS Type B is a hot rolled commercial quality steel (CS) that is suitable for many applications where normal surface imperfections are not objectionable.
The "P&O" means that this material has been Pickled & Oiled as a rust preventative. Treatment and other processing operations must be properly performed so as to not detrimentally affect the properties of the steel. Commercial quality (More commonly referred to as "Commercial Steel or CS") will meet the bend test requirements of ASTM A1011/1018 CS Type B.
Alro also carries A1011 without P&O. Click here to learn more.
A1011/1018 CS TYPE B P&O is typically bought to meet chemistry requirements rather than physical requirements. For that reason, physical properties are generally not provided unless requested prior to production. Any material can be sent to a third party after production to be tested for physical properties.
Applications for ASTM A1011 include:
- Agricultural Implements
- Automotive Components/Frames
- Barrels and Drums
- Structural Parts/Frames
- General Fabrication Purposes
