ASTM A285 Grade C

Although only effective in lower pressure environments, ASTM 285 Grade C is found throughout industry in a wide range or low pressurised applications. ASTM A285 Grade C is used in a range of other applications including structural, mechanical and general engineering purposes.

ASTM A285 Grade C is a low to intermediate yield steel used in the fabrication of carbon steel pressure vessels and boilers.

The steel is intended for use in standard tanks and boilers rather than high pressurised vessels due to the steels lower yield strength. ASTM A285 Grade C is supplied throughout the oil gas and petrochemical industry, and Masteel UK Limited hold this material in stock.

The material has good forming and welding characteristics under conventional methods.
