    This guide covers standard specification for stainless steel, textured sheets, especially for use in electronic packaging applications. The textured side or sides of the sheet shall be produced in such a manner that guarantees repeatability of the pattern over time. The texture of any sheet shall conform to the textured reference identification criteria: pattern orientation; pattern appearance; height of pattern; size of pattern; type of pattern; pattern repetition configuration; and pattern effect on far side of sheet. The heat chemical composition shall be reported and shall conform to the specified requirements. The material shall undergo all the tests and inspections such as appearance testing, tensile strength testing, and corrosion testing in indoor and outdoor environment.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers stainless steel, textured sheets, especially for use in electronic packaging applications, for example, cabinet, rack, enclosure, and shelf constructions for telecommunication, computer, and data-processing equipment.

    1.2 This specification applies to all finished flat-rolled stainless products specified by standards organizations such as International Standards Organization (ISO), American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), European Committee for Standardization (CEN), German Institute for Standardization (DIN), and others participating in a global standards harmonization effort.

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
