Ocean-going vessels and offshore structures play a pivotal societal role by boosting global trade, commerce, and employment. Often, however, they are subjected to extreme temperatures, corrosive environments, and harsh chemicals. Help a marine application overcome these conditions with ABS DH 36 steel plate.
An application’s intended operating environment is important to consider when choosing ABS DH 36 steel plate or its sister-grade steel plates. ABS DH 36 can sustain impact forces at -20 degrees Celsius, whereas ABS AH 36 can withstand impact forces at +20 degrees Celsius. ABS EH 36 can sustain impact forces at -40 degrees Celsius.
Universal Steel America stocks ABS DH 36 steel plate with thicknesses from 1/4 to 4 inches in the normalized condition. This material is available in standard widths of 96 and 120 inches and lengths of 240 and 480 inches. Width and length restrictions exist, however, depending on plate weight and mill capabilities
