This specification covers structural quality carbon steel plates in standard and non-standard grades furnished to chemical composition requirements. The materials shall conform to carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, silicon, and copper contents of its specified grade. Values are also given to specify the range, limit, and maximum chemical compositions of the carbon steel.
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 structural quality carbon steel plates furnished to chemical composition requirements.
1.2 The plates are available in several standard steel grades and non-standard grades.
1.3 The plates are usually furnished in the as-rolled (hot-rolled) condition.
1.4 Supplementary requirements are provided for additional requirements that may be specified on the order.
1.5 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.
1.6 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.
2. Referenced Documents (purchase separately) The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
