G205/ 201A has extremely high strength, it also provides some advantages over G304 in certain structural applications. Presence of copper in this steel reduces work hardening rate and improves draw ability. Nitrogen improves resistance to printing corrosion. The alloy is nonmagnetic in annealed condition like G304. Thus G205 can display a wide range of mechanical strength depending on the degree of cold working, which is essential for certain structural applications.
