Steel Sheet Specification Guide
Tampa Bay Steel carries a variety of hot and cold rolled sheet products including low carbon, pickled and oiled, and abrasion resistant.
A low cost steel sheet, soft enough to bend flat on itself in any direction, without cracking, ductile enough for shallow drawing. Carbon is .10 max. (instead of .15 max) for improved welding and forming. Surface has normal mill oxide. Conforms to ASTM A569. Used for tanks, barrels, farm implements and other applications where finish is secondary.
PICKLED AND OILED
Acid pickling provides smoother, more uniform surface. Paint and enamel adhere well. Properties and characteristics same as low carbon sheets. Conforms to ASTM A569 and A1011-CS-B.
Medium carbon content plus higher manganese greatly improve resistance to abrasion. 210 min. Brinell. For scrapers, liners, chutes, conveyors — outlasting low carbon steel by two to ten times. Moderate formability.
A continuous mill product made with a high degree of gauge accuracy and uniformity of physical characteristics. The smooth deoxidized matte finish gives an excellent base for paint, lacquer and enamel. Box annealing and absence of scale permit stamping and moderate drawing operations. Sheets bend flat on themselves without cracking. Oiling protects surface against rust. Conforms to ASTM A1008-CS Type B Commercial Steel, oiled with carbon content held to .10 max (instead of .15 max as the spec permits) for improved welding and forming.
