General Info About A871

A871 weathering steel comes in 2 different grades including grades 60 and 65. To meet mechanical requirements, 871 steel plate can be provided in the as-rolled, normalized, or quenched and tempered conditions.

  • Advantages/Disadvantages

    When A871 is properly designed, it can be used bare, without paint, for many applications. It has very good corrosion resistance comes at a higher price point than other steel plates.

  • Applications

    A871 steel is used in tubular structures and poles where the atmospheric corrosion resistance is a must. Some examples are:

    • lighting poles
    • signposts
    • transmission poles
  • Machining

    A871 can be machined in the annealed condition, but will have better results when the condition is H1150M.

  • Welding

    A871 can be welded by common fusion and resistance methods, but should not be joined by oxyacetulene welding.

  • Heat Treatment

    A871 is heat-treatable.
