ASTM A285 is a standard specification for carbon steel, low- and intermediate-tensile strength steel plates intended for fusion-welded pressure vessels. It is available in three grades: A, B, and C.

A285 steel is used in a variety of applications, including storage tanks, boilers, and other pressure vessels. It is also used in structural and mechanical applications where good weldability and formability are required.

Available steel plate range is from 14GA thick to 3 inches [2mm to 75mm]
