Here is Comprehensive FAQ Guide about ASTM 1018 Carbon Steel Profile for your reference:

What shapes are available?
Common structural 1018 profiles include C, I, H, angles and channels in various sizes. Both hot rolled and cold finished options exist.

What thickness and lengths?
Profiles range from 1/8"-4" thick typically with lengths up to 25' depending on the shape. Custom sizes can be produced as well.

How does 1018 compare to other grades?
Its machining advantage over lower grades makes 1018 a versatile choice. The lower carbon content provides more formability than higher grades if shaping is required.
