Question: What does MC mean in steel?

hot rolled steel mc channel profile guide.

What is a MC channel?

​​​​​​Gerdau MC Channel is a structural channel used to carry load weight and is commonly employed in construction of nonresidential buildings, steps for staircases, foundation applications, and in OEM manufacturing of tractor trailers, and heavy duty equipment and machinery.​

What is channel steel?

Steel Channel is a Hot Rolled product (typically grade ASTM A36). When looking at a cross section it has a vertical web with horizontal top and bottom flanges. The Structural Channel, also known as a C-Channel is distinguished from I-beam or H-beam or W-beam which has flanges on both sides of the web.

What is the difference between C and MC?

Hot rolled MC channels have a “structural shape” meaning at least one dimension (excluding length) is greater than 3 inches. MC channels have smaller flange slope than “C” channels. ASTM A36 / A36M-08 is the standard specification for carbon structural steel.

What is U channel used for?

U channels are used as trim for hand and stair railings, including escalators, in commercial spaces. Metal railings are easier to maintain and longer-lasting than their plastic or wood counterparts.

What is HP shape steel?

The bearing pile (HP-shape) is almost identical to the W-shape. The only difference is that the flange thickness and web thickness of the bearing pile are equal, whereas the W-shape has different web and flange thicknesses.

What is the difference between C and MC section of steel?

Hot rolled MC channels have a “structural shape” meaning at least one dimension (excluding length) is greater than 3 inches. MC channels have smaller flange slope than “C” channels. Common applications include structural support, trailers, and other architectural uses.

What is the difference between an H beam and an I beam?

H-beam: The H-beam looks like one piece of metal but it has a bevel where three pieces of metal come together. I-beam: An I-beam is not made by welding or riveting sheets of metal together and is only one piece of metal throughout.

How is steel channel made?

A Steel Channel is a C-shaped Structure made from Mild Steel that is hot rolled. The inside corners of the steel channel have specific radii that provides it the required strength and rigidity to support steel angles, and for various other structural and construction projects.
