Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers aluminum-coated steel sheet in coils and cut lengths available with two types of aluminum coating applied by the hot-dip process, with several coating weights. The heat analysis of the base metal shall conform to the requirements specified. Structural steel and high strength low alloy steel shall conform to the mechanical property requirements. Coating weight and bend tests shall be made to conform to the requirements specified.
