Classification and use of angle steel

Introduction to angle steel


Angle steel is commonly known as angle iron, and its cross-section is a long strip of steel with two sides perpendicular to each other at right angles. Angle steel can be divided into equilateral angle steel and unequal angle steel. The two vertical sides have the same length as equilateral angle steel, and one long and one short are unequal angle steel. Its specifications are expressed in millimeters of side width x side width x side thickness.

Three classifications of angle steel


(1) Hot-rolled equilateral angle steel (GB9787-88)

Primary use: Angle steel can be used to form various stress-bearing components according to different structural needs, and can also be used as a connector between components. Angle steel is widely used in various building structures and engineering structures, such as large structural parts such as factories, bridges, and vehicles; it is also used in structural parts such as building trusses, iron towers, and derricks. The specifications of hot-rolled equilateral angle steel range from 2# to 20#.


(2) Hot-rolled unequal angle steel (GB978-88)

The unequal angle steel is that the width and length of the two sides are different, one is long and the other is short, and its specification is expressed in millimeters of long side width × short side width × side thickness. The specifications of hot-rolled unequal-angle steel range from 2.5/1.6# to 20/12.6#. Main application: Large hot-rolled unequal-angle steel is mainly used for large structural parts such as factories, bridges, and vehicles; medium-sized angle steel is primarily used for building structures, trusses, iron frames, brackets, etc.; small unequal-angle steel is mainly used for structural parts.


(3) Marine angle steel (YB167-65, YB170-63)

Due to the harsh working environment of ships, the properties of marine angle steel materials are required to have good toughness, high strength, good corrosion resistance, welding performance, and surface performance. The chemical composition of the material is also different from that of ordinary angle iron. Main application: Marine angle steel is mainly used for internal components of the hull, etc.
