Atlas Tube is now producing ASTM A1085 HSS, a new specification that provides improved performance resulting in an easier and more cost effective HSS design. The ASTM A1085 HSS specification covers cold-formed welded carbon steel hollow structural sections (HSS) for welded or bolted construction.
*Atlas Tube charges an adder of $3/cwt ($60/ton) for A1085 over current A500 pricing – approximately 7% higher than current A500 pricing. This adder is to cover the additional material and quality control testing that A1085 requires.
Tighter material tolerances and a single minimum yield stress of 50 ksi.
Maximum specified yield stress of 70 ksi.
Standard requirement for Charpy notch toughness.
