Specifications for A516 carbon steel plates are intended primarily for service in welded pressure vessels where improved notch toughness is important.

Plates under this specification are available in four grades having different strength levels, including Grades 55, 60, 65, and 70.

The maximum thickness of these plates is limited by the capacity of the composition to meet the specified mechanical property requirements.

This standard has been approved for use by offices underneath the jurisdiction of the Department of Defense.

An example application: Rail Car Tank Steel, used for manways, sump applications, car heads and shells. Low corrosion properties.
