Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers standard requirements for cold-rolled commercial steel sheet coils and cut lengths. The cast or heat analysis of the steel shall conform to the chemical requirements for carbon, manganese, phosphorus, and sulfur. Unspecified elements may be present. Limits on additional elements such as copper, nickel, chromium, molybdenum, vanadium, and columbium shall be stated. The material shall also conform to the required bending properties.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification covers cold-rolled commercial steel (CS) sheet in coils and cut lengths, in which the maximum of the specified carbon range is over 0.15 and not over 0.25 %, and the maximum of the specified manganese range is not over 0.90 %. This material is ordered to chemical composition.
1.3 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.
