Carbon A588 Plate
Castle Metals stocks a wide range of Carbon A588 plate. Our distribution network includes warehouses in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, U.K, France, Singapore, and Shanghai. When customers call us about Carbon A588, a lot of times we also hear about pressures supporting a lean process or a cellular production system. When we hear these sorts of things, sometimes it makes sense to talk about Kanban or kitting as ways to simplify your work on the production floor.
Carbon A588 is a high strength, low-alloy (HSLA) formable steel ideal for machining and welding. The addition of copper to A588 plate allows this material to withstand atmospheric corrosion four times greater than general purpose plate while providing the strength and strength-to-weight properties comparable to A572 steel. So A588 plate is commonly used for products that are exposed to weather.
