A quenched & tempered alloy steel that provides advantages
compared to regular carbon steels. 100,000 psi yield strength
through 2-1/2" in thickness, 90,000 psi yield strength through 6"
in thickness. These strength levels provide about 3 times that of
structural carbon steel, weldability and good toughness at low
atmospheric temperatures. This material is designed for a wide
variety of structural uses such as construction equipment, mining
equipment, hauling equipment, lifting equipment, and any other
applications where the strength can be utilized to reduce weight.
Olympic stocks A514 in grades B, E, F, H, Q, & S.
A low carbon quenched & tempered constructional alloy steel
available in thicknesses thru 6 inches for structural use. Through
heat treatment it attains an excellent combination of high yield
strength, weldability and good toughness, even at low temperatures.
For general construction uses where its great strength permits
reduction in gross weight because smaller cross-sections can be
specified...fabricated bridge, tower and building members;
components such as frames, bases, supports, and base or body plates
for earthmoving or transport equipment; booms, dipper sticks, and
bucket parts for power shovels or cranes; pressure vessels.
