Hot Rolled Steel Railcap/Handrail
A36 hot rolled steel rail cap or handrail, is an excellent candidate for most processing techniques. A36 hot rolled steel rail caps have a rough, blue-grey finish, dull rounded edges and have inexact dimensions throughout length. A36 material is a low carbon steel, often referred to as mild steel which is long lasting and durable. Designed for use as a handrail or use for ornamental projects. ASTM A36 / A36M-08 is the standard specification for carbon structural steel.
Most commonly used mild and hot rolled steel. Good welding, forming, & machining. Low cost structural steel.
