Sheet, strip, wire 16GS - 15ga
Supplier — AvekGlob Company — offers sheet, tape, wire, which are made of structural steel 16GS (15GA) at an affordable price from the manufacturer. The supplier guarantees the timely delivery of products to any address specified by the consumer.
Low-carbon steel grade 16GS (in Poland, steel is produced under the brand name 15GA) is a low-alloy steel containing an increased percentage of manganese and silicon. In the USA, this steel is produced according to the ASTM A633 standard and has the designation Gr. B / UNS K01803.
Steel retains its macrostructure and strength characteristics in a wide range of temperatures — from -75 0 С to +350 0 С.
Urgency of application
Steel grade 16GS (15GA) is widely used for the production of plate, flat, tape, sheet and wire coils, square bars, other supporting elements of steel structures (including welded), forged casings of large valves, rings, multi-stage shafts with quiet operation. It is often used as a boiler steel (the manufacture of hulls of pipelines, auxiliary equipment and heat exchangers of boiler plants).
According to the technical requirements of GOST 19281−2014, 16GS steel comprises the following elements (numerical data — in percentages):
|0.12−0.18||0.7 — 0.8||0.9 — 1.2||up to 0.3||up to 0.035||to 0.03||up to 0.3||up to 0.12||up to 0.008||up to 0.3||up to 0.08|
When smelting steel is deoxidized by aluminum in a volume of 0.02… 0.06%.

Assortment and application features
Sheet, tape and wire from low-alloy steel 16GS (15GA) are manufactured in a wide range of cross-sections and lengths. Mechanical machinability and weldability — without restrictions. The critical range of pressures at which the material does not lose its integrity is up to 35 MPa. The ductility of steel at room temperatures is satisfactory (only the separation operations). The temperature range of forging is 820… 1200 0 С.
