Bushwick Metals Stock 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. ASTM A588 is a High Strength Low Alloy Steel that is used in general structural applications when the structural will be riveted, bolted, or welded. ASTM A588 is a Copper bearing steel that offers a minimum yield of 50 KSI and has approximately two to four times the corrosion resistance of carbon steel without copper. ASTM A588 structurals are used whenever a cost savings from a weight reduction can be gained or when there are concerns about atmospheric corrosion. ASTM A36 is a Carbon Steel that is used in general structural applications when the structural will be riveted, bolted, or welded. ASTM A36 is produced to mechanical properties offering a minimum yield of 36 KSI and a minimum tensile of 58 KSI. A36 is available as a special order from the mill.
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.
ASTM A36 is a Carbon Steel that is used in general plate applications when the plate will be riveted, bolted, or welded.

On plates 8" thick and over the minimum yield is 32 KSI.
ASTM A572-GR 50 is a High Strength Low Alloy Steel that is used in general plate applications when the plate will be riveted, bolted, or welded. ASTM A572-GR 50 is a 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.

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 V-Notch Tests available. Bushwick Metals stocks A588 plates up to 8" thick.
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.
Electric-resistance-welded Pipe 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 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.
