high yield strength in the application that is not attained in conventional high strength steels. They can potentially be substituted for drawing quality sheet at the stamping plant without requiring major ASTM A588 is a High Strength Low Alloy Steel that is used in general structural applications when the structural will be riveted, bolted, or welded. ASTM A588 is a Copper bearing steel that offers a minimum yield of 50 KSI and has approximately two to four times the corrosion resistance of carbon steel without copper.

high-strength low-alloy, high-strength low-alloy with im-proved formability, solution hardened, and bake hardenable steel sheet, in coils and cut lengths. 1.2 Cold rolled steel sheet is available in the designations as listed in 4.1. 1.3 This specification does not apply to steel strip as described in Specification A 109/A 109M.
