Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 November 2017
Status: active
Page Count: 4
ICS Code (Steels for pressure purposes): 77.140.30
scope:

This specification2 covers carbon steel plates intended primarily for service in welded pressure vessels where improved notch toughness is important.

Plates under this specification are available in four grades having different strength levels as follows:

The maximum thickness of plates is limited only by the capacity of the composition to meet the specified mechanical property requirements.

For plates produced from coil and furnished without heat treatment or with stress relieving only, the additional requirements, including additional testing requirements and the reporting of additional test results of Specification A20/A20M apply.

The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.

This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.

*A Summary of Changes section appears at the end of this standard
