A514 Steel Plate
Chemical Composition
ASTM A514 is typically bought to meet physical requirements rather than chemical requirements. For that reason, chemical content is generally not provided unless requested prior to production. Any material can be sent to a third party after production to be tested for chemical content.

ASTM A514 Alloy Steel Plate

ASTM A514 steel plate is a steel plate material known for its high yield strength, weldability, and toughness, even at low temperatures. ASTM A514 is a low carbon quenched and tempered alloy steel that is a low-cost, high performing material for structural use and high wear machine applications. A514 steel plate meets the ASTM International standard A514. This steel plate has a yield strength of 100,000 psi (100 ksi or approximately 700 MPa).

The A514 plate steels are a group of quenched and tempered alloys with many attractive advantages and characteristics. It has a minimum tensile strength of 100 ksi (689 MPa) and at least 110 ksi (758 MPa) ultimate. Plates from 2.5 inches to 6.0 inches have a specified tensile strength of 90 ksi (621 MPa) and 100 - 130 ksi (689 - 896 MPa) ultimate. A514 plate also provides good weldability, and toughness at low atmospheric temperatures. The ASTM A514 group is designed for a wide range of structural uses as well as machinery and equipment.  However, the primary use  is as a structural steel in building construction. This group of steel, which also includes A517, alloy steel combine optimum strength, toughness, corrosion resistance, impact-abrasion resistance, and long-term economy.

Other names for ASTM A-514 are T-1. This is the trademarked name for the ArcelorMittal material.
