GS-38 / GE 200

Characteristics of GS-38

GS38 is a commonly used non-alloy cast steel for general engineering. It is comparable to GG40, however GS38 steel offers good weldability. GS38 is a cast steel variant of C35 structural steel.

The applications for GS38 include frames, bearing housings, (rear) axles (e.g. forklift trucks and sweepers) and structural steel parts (e.g. station canopies).
