ASTM A516 / ASME SA516 steel plates are high-strength carbon steel plates primarily used in the construction of pressure vessels and boilers. Suitable for high-pressure environments and demanding operating conditions, such as those encountered in the oil and gas industry, chemical processing plants, and power generation facilities.

Manufactured in various grades including 55, 60, 65, and 70. The plates are typically supplied in normalized condition, heat treated to improve toughness and reduce susceptibility to brittle fracture.

Commonly available dimensional range;

  • Thickness: 0.20 inches to 6 inches (5mm to 150mm)

  • Width: up to 120 inches (3000mm)

  • Length: up to 46 ft (14m)


Custom dimensional range from mill’s production;

  • Thickness: up to 10 inches (250mm)

  • Width: up to 180 inches (4500mm)

  • Length: up to 79 ft (24m)
