    General Product Description

    The Canadian Standards Association (CSA) specification G40.20/G40.21 covers structural quality steel of a number of different product forms. SSAB produces structural quality plates and sheet in accordance with CSA G40.20/G40.21 with specified minimum yield strengths of 38 ksi to 70 ksi. CSA 70A is an atmospheric corrosion-resistant weldable steel with a specified minimum yield strength of 70 ksi for thicknesses up to 2.5 in.
