ASTM WK88351

Revision of A285/A285M-17 Standard Specification for Pressure Vessel Plates, Carbon Steel, Low- and Intermediate-Tensile Strength


As part of a five year review of this standard, the following change was identified: revise S58 to eliminate the word "incidental" from S58.1 S58 restricts the copper content by heat analysis to 0.25%. How the copper content of the heat is achieved, whether incidental (occurring by chance) or as an intentional addition should not be material or relevant.
