ABS A steel properties and applications

BBN steel offers grades that are certified by ABS - the American Bureau of Shipbuilding. ABS A steel is almost exclusively utilized in the shipbuilding industry for the construction of structural parts of ships, barges and marine equipment.

ABS A steel properties:

Class Grade ABS A steel Chemical Composition(%)
C Mn≥ Si P S Mark
ABS Grade A 0.21 2.5×C 0.5 0.035 0.035 AB/A
Class Grade ABS A steel Mechanical Property
Tensile Strength(MPa) Yield Strength(MPa) % Elongation in 2 in.(50mm) min Impacting Test  Temperature(°C)
ABS Grade A 400-520 235 22 20

BBN steel has a large number of ABS A steel stocks, including ABS A steel plates, ABS A angle steel, ABS A bulb flat, etc. With good toughness properties and higher strength, ABS A steel is mainly used to contribute hull of ships and the cranes of break bulker and vessels in low temperature oceans.
