Yes, Vulcan Steel ships coast to coast and into Canada and Mexico as well.
None. They are identical and Vulcan can supply both products. Note: A193 B8 / B8M are for high temperatures and pressures and A320 are for cold applications
B8M is required to be carbide solution treated and tested to meet the stringent chemical and mechanical requirements as outlined in ASTM A193 for use in high temperature and high pressure service produces B8M.
ASTM A36 is a material specification for carbon structural steel. ASTM F1554-36 is fastener specification. The two most common fastener specifications for carbon steel threaded rod are ASTM A307A and ASTM F1554-36. Both require that the threaded rod or stud meet the minimum tensile requirements of A36. Each specification may require additional testing. Please refer… Read more »
