A992 Grade Structural Corrosion-Resistant Steel

Over the last ten years, ASTM A572 GR 50 has been the standard choice in the structural steel industry. ASTM A992 GR50 has now become the next generation de facto standard. The major advantage of A992 is its improved material definition and like A572 GR 50, A992 can also offer some cost advantages over A36. Because of the widespread use of A992, the list of applications is truly impressive, and ranges across general construction, building frames, bridges, and much more. From wide flange beams to carbon steel I beams, A992 steel comes in a variety of shapes to work for a multitude of construction applications.
