ABS AH36 / DH36 / EH36
Arrow Pipes & Plates Industries offers grades A131 AH36, A131 DH36 and A131 EH36. Like ABS A & B, these grades of steel plate are almost exclusively utilized in the Shipbuilding Industry for the construction of Structural Parts of ships, barges and Marine Equipment. All grades are certified by ABS (American Bureau of Shipbuilding) and represents the Higher Strength Group of ABS. Arrow Pipes & Plates stock AH36 in the control rolled condition, DH36 in both the control rolled and normalized condition and EH36 in the normalized condition.
These grades used primarily in shipbuilding / repair and other marine applications. The high strength characteristics service the structural requirements of ships, barges, and other types of marine equipment. The EH 40 is utilized for applications which require added strength. ABS certification is normally provided

AThe contents of any other element intentionally added is to be determined and reported.
BThe steel is to contain at least one of the grain refining elements in sufficient amount to meet the fine grain practice requirement.
CGrade AH 0.5 in. [12.5 mm] and under in thickness may have a minimum manganese content of 0.70%.
DIf the content of soluble aluminum is not less than 0.015%, the minimum required silicon content does not apply.
EThe total aluminum content may be used instead of acid soluble content, in accordance with 7.1.
FThe indicated amount of aluminum, columbium, and vanadium applies if any such element is used singly. If used in combination, the minimum content in 7.2.2 and 7.2.3, as appropriate, will apply.
G0.012 if aluminum is present.

AFor nominal thickness or diameter under 5/16 in. [8 mm], a deduction from the specified percentage of elongation in 8 in. [200 mm] shall be made. See elongation requirement adjustments under the Tension Test section of Specifications A6/A6M for deduction values.
BElongation is not required for floor plate.
CFor nominal thickness or diameter over 3.5 in. [90 mm], a deduction from the specified percentage of elongation in 2 in. [50 mm] shall be made. See elongation requirement adjustments under the Tension Test section of Specification A6/A6M for deduction values.
DFor Grade A shapes and bars, the upper limit of tensile strength may be 80 ksi [550 MPa].
