Product usage:Used for construction
ASTM steel channel section properties various sizes ranging c3 - c15 astm a36 channel is one of the most widely used carbon steels in industry. A36 steel it is weldable, formable, and machinable. Galvanizing the steel increases its corrosion-resistance.
C-channels are standardized channel section. The hot rolled execution has conical flanges, while the laser fused has parallel ones. Both their tolerances are defined by astm a 484, the laser fused execution has additionally the product standard defined by astm a1069.
C-channels in stainless steel are used in commerce and industry but also in machinery and equipment building. The use of stainless steel profiles is characterized by a high flexibility of composition and a fast and cost reduced construction (through the possibility of prefabrication in the steel production). Stainless steel profiles are produced mainly from scrap and can be recycled again after utilization so new resources can be conserved.
C channels are designated by the letter c followed by the nominal depth in inches and the weight in pounds per foot. Thus c 7 × 12.25 designates an american standard c channel with a depth of 7 inches and a nominal weight of 12.25 pounds per foot.
