A-633 Grades A, C, D, E

Overview

This is a high-strength / low alloy grade produced in the normalized condition. It is predominantly used in environments where superior notch toughness is needed at low ambient temperatures. Typical applications is in the areas of construction equipment, offshore support structures, and other construction areas where additional strength is critical.
