1.1 This specification covers hot-rolled and cold-rolled steel sheet coated by the electrolytic process. Coatings can be comprised of pure metals or metal alloys. For specific coatings, refer to Specifications A 879 and A 918.
1.2 The product shall be coated on one or both surfaces with equal or differential coating masses on the two surfaces. Sheet-coated with equal coating masses on each surface has similar levels of corrosion protection on each surface. Often, however, a higher level of corrosion protection is required on one surface than is required on the other. In these situations, one surface shall be specified with a heavier coating mass than the other. Either surface, when specified to be painted, will provide additional corrosion protection as compared to an unpainted surface.
1.3 This coating process has essentially no effect on the base metal mechanical properties, and use is permitted on any grade of hot-rolled or cold-rolled steel sheet. The coated sheet is available as Commercial Steel (CS), Drawing Steel (DS), Deep Drawing Steel (DDS), Extra-Deep Drawing Steel (EDDS), Structural Steel (SS) High-Strength Low-Alloy Steel (HSLAS), or High-Strength Low-Alloy Steel with Improved Formability (HSLAS-F).
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
