ASTM A573 Steel, grade 70
Categories: Metal; Ferrous Metal; ASTM Steel; Carbon Steel; Low Carbon Steel

Material Notes: Carbon-manganese-silicon steel plate, structural quality
Improved toughness

Intended for fusion welding and for service at atmospheric temperatures where improved notch toughness is important. Mn content is exceedable if C content plus Mn content is < 0.40%. The following are suggested consumables for arc welding processes: Manual Shielded Metal-Arc (AWS A5.5) Low Hydrogen Electrodes E7015, E7016, E7018, E7028; Submerged Arc (AWS A5.23) F7x-Exxx; Gas Metal-Arc (AWS A5.28) ER70S-x; Flux Cored-Arc (AWS A5.29) E7xT-x except -2, -3, -10, or -GS.
