Values in inch-pound and SI units are not necessarily equivalent. Ashm the text, SI units are shown in brackets. Each system shall be used independently of the other. These notes and footnotes excluding those in tables and?

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Current edition approved October 10, Originally published as A — 62 T. It is intended principally for heatresisting applications and also for uses where corrosion resistance and heat are involved.

It is available aatm a coating on each of the designations of steel sheet listed in 4. NOTE 1—Typical ordering descriptions are as follows: Because of the many variables and changing conditions that are characteristic of asrm hot-dip coating lines, the weight [mass] of coating is not always evenly divided between the two surfaces of a sheet, nor is the coating evenly distributed from edge to edge. B No minimum means that there are no established minimum requirements for triple- and single-spot tests, but aluminum coating shall be present.

The following, as required, atm be used to adequately describe the product required. The purchaser shall specify the appropriate table of thickness tolerances in Speci? When the amount of vanadium, titanium, or columbium is less than 0. These mechanical property values are nonmandatory.

They are solely to provide the purchaser with as much information as possible to make an informed decision on the steel to be speci?


C When a deoxidized steel is required for the application, the purchaser has the option to order CS and FS to a minimum of 0. E For carbon levels less than or equal to 0. In such cases, the applicable limit for vanadium and columbium shall be 0. G Shall not be furnished as a stabilized steel.

H Shall be furnished as a stabilized steel. I Shall contain silicon 1. J Shall contain silicon 1. Titanium is permitted for SS steels to 0. The minimum requirements only apply to the microalloy astmm selected for strengthening of the steel. C these ranges are to be expected.

ASTM A Aluminum-Coated Steel, Type I, Drawing Quality

There are many interrelated factors that affect the ability of a steel to cold form over a given radius under shop conditions. These factors 3 include: If the hardness result aa463 85 HRB or higher, no tension test is required. C As there is no discontinuous yield curve, the yield strength should be taken as the stress at 0. D If a higher tensile strength is required, the user should consult the producer.

They are intended solely to provide the purchaser with as much information as possible to make an informed decision on the steel to be speci? Values outside of these ranges are to be expected. The purchaser may negotiate with the supplier if a speci?

B These typical mechanical properties apply to the full range of steel sheet thicknesses. The yield strength tends to increase and some of the formability values tend to decrease as the sheet thickness decreases. E No typical mechanical properties have been established. This is not considered to be a fault of the steel but is rather a function of aztm induced cold-work.

For all designations the coating bend test inside diameter shall be equal to twice the thickness of the specimen. Flaking of the coating within 0. Dimensions and Permissible Variations 9. A One ounce of Type 1 aluminum coating per square foot of surface corresponds to an average coating thickness of 0.

All other values in Table X2. B Weight [mass] to thickness conversions are reliable to only two signi? Inch-pound to SI conversions are reliable to? A greater number of digits are shown in Table X2. The former designations also did not re? The new designations are de? These steel characteristics are important to users concerned with the weldability and formability of the coated steel products.


The typical mechanical properties included in the new designation system are those indicated by the tension test. These properties are more predictive of steel formability than other tests, such as the hardness test, which may not compensate adequately for sstm variables such as substrate thickness and coating weight.

Some of the reasons for this x463 relationship are the following: Continuing dialogue between users and producers asm have to be maintained to assist in the transition to the new designation system. A user with concerns about the appropriate coated steel to order for a speci?
