Grade 50





A572 Grade 50 is a high strength, low alloy steel that finds its best application where there is need for more strength per unit of weight. Less of this material is needed to fulfill given strength requirements than is necessary with regular carbon steels.A572  Grade 50 is used in general plate applications when the plate will be riveted, bolted, or welded.  A57 Grade 50 is a Columbium-Vanadium steel that contains a minimum yield of 50,000 PSI. A572 Grade 50 contains more alloying elements than plain carbon steel and thus is somewhat more difficult to form. Grade 50 can be successfully bent or shaped, but requires more force than plain carbon steel.
