BUSHWICK METALS STOCKS THREE GRADES OF STRUCTURAL BEAMS.
ASTM A992/ASTM A572-GR 50 is a High Strength Low Alloy Steel that is used in general structural applications when the structural will be riveted, bolted, or welded. ASTM A572-GR50 is Columbium-Vanadium Steel that offers a minimum yield of 50 KSI and is used whenever a cost savings from a weight reduction can be gained.

HOT ROLLED CARBON STEEL BAR ANGLES AND STRUCTURAL ANGLES
HOT ROLLED CARBON STEEL BAR CHANNELS, STRUCTURAL CHANNELS
& MISCELLANEOUS CHANNELS.
HOT ROLLED CARBON STEEL BARS
MERCHANT QUALITY BARS
A minimum of discard is taken from the ingot during the production of Merchant Quality Bars. The bars should be free from visible piping, but seams and other surface irregularities may be present. Chemical Composition is reported only on the ladle analysis. Merchant Quality Bars are easily welded, formed, and can be machined, but are not recommended for forging, heat-treating, cold drawing, or intricate machining. Merchant Quality Bars conform to ASTM A575.
SPECIAL QUALITY BARS
Special Quality Bars are produced under more stringent controls than Merchant Quality Bars. Enough of the ingot is discarded to avoid piping. Blooms and billets are inspected and prepared by grinding, scarfing, and chipping in order to minimize surface imperfections. Chemistry is subject to ladle and check analysis. Special Quality Bars are used when extensive machining and, (or), heat-treating is planned. Special Quality Bars conform to ASTM A576.
LOW CARBON BARS
M1020 is a low carbon steel with medium manganese that is produced to a specific chemical composition. M1020 bars are suitable for welding and forming applications.
ASTM A-36 is produced to mechanical properties offering a minimum yield of 36 KSI and a minimum tensile strength 58 KSI. A-36 Bars are designed to be used in structural applications.
HIGH STRENGTH LOW ALLOY BARS
ASTM A-588 is a high strength steel offering a minimum yield of 50KSI for bars up to 4" thick. These bars are copper bearing bars that offer approximately two to four times the corrosion resistance of carbon steel bars without copper. High Strength Low Alloy bars are used whenever a cost savings from a weight reduction can be gained or when there are concerns about atmospheric corrosion.
Hot Rolled Sheet: A Commercial Quality, low carbon steel that is soft
enough to bend flat on itself in any direction without cracking. The surfaces
of these sheets have a normal mill oxide and are used in applications where
surface finish is not critical. Conforms to ASTM A-1011.
Hot Rolled Pickled and Oiled Sheet: Characteristics are similar to that of Hot
Rolled Commercial Quality Sheets but with an improved surface finish. Acid
pickling removes surface oxides and then oil is applied to protect the surface
from rust. This process creates a more uniform surface, which after cleaning
improves the adhesion of paints and enamels. Conforms to ASTM A-1011.
Hot Rolled High Strength Low Alloy Sheet: A Hot Rolled Sheet which offers
a much higher Yield Strength and more corrosion resistance than a Hot
Rolled Commercial Quality Sheet. These sheets are two to four time more
corrosive resistant than low carbon steel sheets and offer a Yield Strength of
50 KSI. The increased strength of these sheets makes them a good choice
when a weight reduction is necessary. Sheets conform to ASTM A-606.
Cold Rolled Sheet: A Commercial Quality, low carbon steel that offers tighter
thickness tolerances and better surface quality than Hot Rolled Pickled and
Oiled Sheets. These sheets are soft enough to bend flat in any direction
without cracking. The deoxidized surface offers an excellent surface for
painting after the sheets are cleaned. The surfaces of theses sheets are
slightly oiled to protect from rust. Conforms to ASTM A-366.
Galvanized Sheet: A Commercial Quality, low carbon sheet that is coated
with a protective layer of zinc. The zinc coating on these sheets offer a
substantial increase in corrosion resistance over an uncoated Hot Rolled
Sheet. These sheets can be formed without the zinc surface flaking or
peeling. Galvanized sheets can be welded or soldered. Various coating
weights, spangle sizes and ASTM specifications are available, please call the
Bushwick Sales office for details.
BUSHWICK METALS STOCKS THREE GRADES OF PLATES.

gained. Charpy V-Notch Tests available. Bushwick Metals stocks A572-GR 50
plates up to 4" thick
ASTM A588 is a High Strength Low Alloy Steel that is used in general plate
applications when the plate will be riveted, bolted, or welded. ASTM A588 is a
Copper bearing steel that offers a minimum yield in the range of 42 KSI to 50
KSI, (depending upon thickness, see table), and has approximately two to four
times the corrosion resistance of carbon steel without copper. ASTM A588
plates are used whenever a cost savings from a weight reduction can be
gained or when there are concerns about atmospheric corrosion. Charpy VNotch
Tests available. Bushwick Metals stocks A588 plates up to 8" thick.
ASTM A516-GR70 is a Pressure Vessel Quality Plate Steel designed to withstand the pressure associated with vessels, tanks, boilers, etc. A516-GR70 is ideally used in low temperature applications where notch toughness is required. The grade is of fine grain structure and is silicon killed. Bushwick stocks A516-Gr70 plates in the As Rolled condition up to and including 1-1/2" thick are stocked in the Normalized Condition.
T-1 Type B Construction Alloy Steel to ASTM A514 is quenched and tempered high strength alloy steel produced to a minimum yield of 100 KSI. This grade offers excellent strength, toughness and fabrication properties. Used in general structural applications where it's high yield can be utilized to reduce part size and overall weight. Used extensively in: bridge fabrication, construction equipment, mining equipment, chutes, liners, bucket and blade parts, cranes, etc.
AR235 and AR400 Abrasion Resistant Plate are impact and abrasion resistant steels that offer much longer usage life over lower carbon steel plates (i.e. A36), in applications where abrasion, impact and wear are a concern. Available in two hardness's: AR235 for moderate resistance applications and AR400 for higher resistance applications. These grades of steel are not intended to be used for structural or load bearing applications. Should not be considered for applications where there will be a high degree of welding being done to the parts due to potential cracking problems. Can be machined and will take a moderate amount of forming and rolling. Excellent choice for when abrasive aggregates are being used. Typical applications include: mining and earth moving uses, liners, mixing drums, material handling, chutes, hoppers, etc.
TUBING & PIPE
VARIOUS TYPES OF TUBING AND PIPE
FURNACE-BUTT WELDED PIPE, CONTINUOUS- WELDED
Pipe produced in continuous lengths from coiled skelp and subsequently cut into individual
lengths, having its longitudinal butt joint forge welded by the mechanical pressure
developed in rolling the hot-formed skelp through a set of round pass welding rolls.
Pipe produced in individual lengths or in continuous lengths from coiled skelp and
subsequently cut into individual lengths, having a longitudinal butt joint wherein
coalescence is produced by the heat obtained from resistance of the pipe to the flow of
electric current in a circuit of which the pipe is a part, and by the application of pressure.
Seamless Pipe is a tubular product made without a welded seam. It is manufactured by
hot working steel and, if necessary, by subsequently cold finishing the hot-worked tubular
product to produce the desired shape, dimensions, and properties.
ROUND MECHANICAL TUBING
Manufactured from M1010 strip steel with uniform wall thickness assured by the close strip
tolerance.Welding flash is removed by either rolling or cutting. Hot Rolled is formed from
Hot Rolled M1010 pickled strip and has a good finish suitable for painting. Cold Rolled is
manufactured from Cold Rolled M1010 No. 2 Finish strip and is particularly adapted to
applications requiring high finish. Both types can be formed, bent, swedged, flattened, etc.
Strong and durable fence posts and rails made of high tensile steel, cold rolled and water
quenched to resist bending and dents. A triple coat protection is applied to seal the
surface, retarding oxidation and flaking to assure long lasting protection.
FS TUBING AND PIPE
FS tube is a hi-strength, light wall product that is designed for the awning industry and
can be used in load-bearing applications. This product can be substituted for fence pipe
and standard pipe. Available in two finishes: Clean-Coat, a clear acrylic which acts as a
rust inhibitor and primer, and in a “Gatorshield®” Galvanized finish.
