A36 steel sheet is from the family of marine sheets and due to its special composition, which shows special resistance against salts and saline water of the seas, and therefore in the marine industry, shipbuilding, berth, industrial and commercial structures in Communication with the sea and similar cases is also used and in various formats, including; Plates, rebars and sheets are also produced.
This sheet is one of the most common marine sheets used in the domestic shipbuilding industry, which is considered by many relevant companies.
A36 steel sheet has a density of 7800 kg per cubic meter. The compressive strength of A36 steel sheet is about 200 GPa (200 GPa).
Thicknesss of less than 200 mm have a minimum strength of 36,000 pounds per inch (36,000 psi) and a final tensile strength of between 58,000 and 8,000 pounds per inch (550-400 MPa).
A36 steel sheet is very suitable for welding operations.
A36 steel sheet
A36 steel sheet is a low carbon steel sheet that has good welding and ductility. This sheet is also supplied galvanized in cases where high corrosion resistance is considered.
In making A36 steel sheet, methods such as electric furnaces or basic oxygen method are used.
The operations performed on this steel in the manufacturing process are:
⇐ Deoxidation operation
⇐ Special operations to control the size and shape of the product as well as the distribution and a handmade of oxide and manganese in steel
This steel sheet is used in the manufacture of various metal parts and most parts are plated after manufacturing and turning. A36 steel sheet is also widely used in the repair of metal ships and vessels.
