ASTM A992/A572 Grade 50 Steel Beam and Channel

ASTM A992 (A572 Grade 50) steel is the most used construction-based structural steel in existence. It is used to make I beams, Wide Flange, channels, plates, angles, and other shapes. ASTM A992 structural steel contains small amounts of vanadium or columbium, copper, nickel, chrome, and molybdenum, which provide increased material definition.

A572 Grade 50 Steel Certification

In most cases, ASTM A992 steel can be dual-certified to A572 grade 50, exhibiting the high strength and improved weight-to-strength found in A572 carbon steel. Since A992 welds easily, it is often used to fabricate structural steel components where high corrosion resistance is required.
