Most rolled shapes produced in the US are in conformance to ASTM A6 (General Requirements for Rolled Structural Steel Bars, Plates, Shapes, and Sheet Piling). So A6  wide flange shapes should be common.
Note that A6 isn't a material specification--nothing about mechanical properties or chemistry for rolled sections. It's mostly stuff like tolerances and delivery. By itself A6 doesn't mean anything; it's only used in association with an actual material spec like A-36.
