A1008 is typically bought to meet chemistry requirements rather than physical requirements. For that reason, physical properties are generally not provided unless requested prior to production. Any material can be sent to a third party after production to be tested for physical properties.
Typical uses for A1008 CR Sheet are:
- Exterior Automotive Components
- Furniture Components
A1008 CR Sheet
Alro stocks ASTM A1008 CR (Cold Rolled) Type B carbon sheet. A1008 CR is a HSLA (High Strength Low Alloy) sheet that exhibits improved formability.
ASTM A1008 CR is produced by annealing and temper rolling hot rolled steel sheets. This process provides formability, surface texture and flatness.
Alro also stocks A1008 CSsheet (Commercial Steel).
