ASTM A572-65 is a high strength low-alloy columbium-vanadium structural steel. This specification provides for a 65ksi minimum yield strength and an 80ksi minimum tensile strength. The primary applications for ASTM A572-65 are:
- Galvanized Octagonal transmission poles
- Lighting Poles
- Highway Sign structures
We purchase this grade with a limited .05Max Silicon content to facilitate the subsequent galvanizing process. ASTM A572-65 is supplied to meet a Charpy V-Notch test of 15ft/LB at -20F.
