RE: REBARS : ASTM A 615 GRADE 60

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Most reinforcing bars that meet ASTM A615, Gr 60, will not meet the
chemistry specifications to allow welding.  Bars which meet ASTM A706 are
specially formulated to be weldable.

Reference AWS D1.4-79 and the PCI (Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute)
Handbook for further information.
