RE: galvanic corrosion

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
No, they are both carbon steels.  But I have to ask, if you're using A588
for corrosion resistance, why not use it for the diagonals too?  If for
higher strength, why not use A572 or a dual-certified steel?

	Does anybody anticipate galvanic corrosion problems if one welds
	A36 diagonals to A588 chords?
