ASME SA588 Grade K Introduction
ASME SA588 Grade K is becoming more popular by roll formed product end-users. Its unique look and naturally oxidizing finish makes it especially desirable for many architectural projects. ASME SA588 Grade K has increased resistance to atmospheric corrosion when compared to other steels. ASME SA588 Grade K resists the corrosive effects of rain, snow, ice, fog, and other meteorological conditions by forming a coating of dark brown oxidation over the metal, which inhibits deeper penetration and saves the cost for painting or rust-prevention maintenance.

What is the Difference Between A588 Grade K and SA588 Grade K?
Actually, the mechanical composition and chemical properties of the steels are identical and produce standard is the key difference. ASTM, the American Society for Testing and Materials, produce standards that defines limits and parameters on a product’s properties and the methods of testing properties. ASME, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, specific materials are used in the manufacture and construction of particular items.

ASME SA588 Grade K Application
ASME SA588 Grade K is mainly used for high sulfur gas flue gas in the province, air preheater, the heat exchangers and evaporators, used for corrosion resist sulfur-containing flue gas condensation. It has excellent resistance to sulfur ions, hydrochloric acid and other acidic corrosion resistant ability.
