General Characteristics of A1011 CS Type B:
- High Strength
- Excellent formability
- May be bent at room temperature up to 180° without exhibiting cracking on the outside of the bend
C1011 CS TYPE B 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.
Applications for ASTM A1011 include:
- Automotive Components/Frames
- Barrels and Drums
- Structural Parts/Frames
- General Fabrication Purposes
A1011 CS Type B SCS Sheet (Smooth Clean Surface)
Alro stocks A1011 CS Type B SCS (Smooth Clean Surface). This is a hot rolled commercial quality steel sheet suitable for many applications. A1011 CS Type B is noted for its high strength and excellent formability. Heat treatment and other processing operations must be properly performed so as to not detrimentally affect the properties of the steel. Commercial quality (More commonly referred to as Commercial Steel or CS) will meet the bend test requirements of ASTM A1011 CS Type B.
