RE:Galvanic corrosion

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Here in Brazil rolled shapes are available in A36 steel only. For all other
steels only plates are available.

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?
