ASTM A516
ASTM A516 Grade 60 | ASTM A516 Grade 65 | ASTM A516 Grade 70



A516 Grade 60 is a pressure vessel/boiler quality grade steel used throughout the petrochemical, oil and gas industry. ASTM A516 Grade 60 is a boiler and pressure vessel quality steel which is ideal for moderate and lower temperature service.

The material is used extensively by industrial boiler and pressure vessel fabricators who provide manufacturing support to the oil, gas and petrochemical industry. The steel has good weldability and excellent notch toughness.

At Masteel UK Limited, we keep a healthy stock of ASTM A516 Grade 60 carbon steel plates. These plates come with mill certification in compliance with EN10204 3.1 or EN10204 3.2. and are hard stamped and fully traceable. Alternatively we can ship to you directly from the mill.

Please refer to the data tables below. Should your require a pressure grade steel with greater tensile and yield strength, please refer to ASTM A516 Grade 65 and/or ASTM A516 Grade 70.
