A285 Grade C is an intermediate to low yield carbon steel. The primary uses for this metal are for vessels and boilers in the oil and gas industries. Due to its lower yield strength it is intended for boiler where moderate strength and good forming are required rather than in high pressurized vessels. A 285 has a tensile strength of 55, to 75,000psi, yield strength of 30,000psi and an elongation of 27% in 2” and 23% minimum in 8”. Both forming and welding can be done on A285 Grade C using conventional methods. These plates are intended for fusion welded pressure vessels.
