We have a job that specifies ASTM A572 grade 50 (Actually AASHTO M270 Grade 50). We need plate that is only 1/8" thick. It's for a shim underneath the sole plate on a steel bridge girder. We can't seem to find a supplier that provides 572 in that thickness. Is 1011 CS a suitable substitute or is there a better recommendation?
