Is SS400 steel same as A36 steel?

Is SS400 steel same as A36 steel?

SS400 belongs to JIS G3101 specifications of rolled steels for general structure.A36 come from specification ASTM A36/A36M for carbon structural steels.This meas these SS400 and A36 steels both used in mild structural industry,have the same applications.

The ASTM standard A36 steel and the JIS standard SS400 steel chemical composition are also much the same.

ASTM A36 SS400 steel Chemical composition %:

Grade C (t≤16mm) Si Mn P S Cu
ASTM A36 0.26 max 0.40 max - 0.040 max 0.050 max 0.20 min
SS400 - - - 0.050 max 0.050 max -

ASTM A36 SS400 steel properties:

Grade Yield strength ReH/(N/mm2) (t≤16mm) min Tensile strength Rm/(N/mm2) (3mm≤t≤16mm) Elongation A/%(3mm≤t≤40mm) min
ASTM A36 250 400-550 23
SS400 245 400-500 21

Both ASTM A36 SS400 steel are designed for structural purposes. In common application cases, ASTM A36 SS400 mechanical property can achieve the same purpose. If you have special steel requirements, you need to look up at the chemical composition and mechanical property table to make sure whether ASTM A36 steel or JIS SS400 steel more suitable.
