    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers structural quality alloy steel plates.

    1.2 The plates are usually specified to chemical composition requirements, but tensile properties may also be specified.

    1.2.1 When tensile properties are required, the specific requirements must be compatible with the chemical composition, condition, and plate thickness.

    1.3 The plates are available in the following four conditions:

    1.3.1 Condition ARAs rolled (hot rolled),

    1.3.2 Condition AAnnealed,

    1.3.3 Condition NNormalized, and

    1.3.4 Condition NTNormalized and tempered.

    1.4 The plates are available in the following three forms:

    1.4.1 Form IRectangular,

    1.4.2 Form IICircular and semi-circular, and

    1.4.3 Form IIISketch, including rings.

    1.5 The plates are available in the following five edge categories:

    1.5.1 Edge 1Mill edge,

    1.5.2 Edge 2Universal mill edge,

    1.5.3 Edge 3Sheared edge,

    1.5.4 Edge 4Gas cut edge, and

    1.5.5 Edge 5Special cut edge.

    1.6 The plates are available in the following seven finishes:

    1.6.1 Finish 1As rolled (hot rolled),

    1.6.2 Finish 2Blast cleaned,

    1.6.3 Finish 3Blast cleaned and oiled,

    1.6.4 Finish 4Pickled,

    1.6.5 Finish 5Pickled and oiled,

    1.6.6 Finish 6Painted, one prime coat, and

    1.6.7 Finish 7Painted, one prime coat and one finish coat.

    1.6.8 The plates are usually specified to have Finish 1.

    1.7 Supplementary requirements are provided for additional requirements that may be specified on the order.

    1.8 When the steel is to be welded, it is presupposed that a welding procedure suitable for the grade of steel and intended use or service will be utilized. See Appendix X3 of Specification A6/A6M for information on weldability.

    1.9 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
