This International Standard applies to continuously hot-rolled carbon steel sheet as defined by chemical composition. The product is generally used in the heat-treated condition after hot or cold working, press forming or cutting by the customer. For example, the product is used for general machinery such as sprocket wheels, chain links, washers, knife blades and agricultural implements.
NOTE 1 Hot-rolled sheet up to but not including 3 mm in thickness is commonly known as "sheet". Hot-rolled sheet 3 mm and over in thickness is commonly known as either "sheet" or "plate".
NOTE 2 Steel sheet that is to be subjected to subsequent rerolling is not covered by this International Standard.
Hot-rolled carbon steel sheet based on chemical composition is manufactured from killed steel of the chemical compositions listed in Table 1. It is usually produced in the range of thicknesses from 0,8 mm to 12,5 mm inclusive, and in widths of 600 mm and over, in coils and cut lengths.
Hot-rolled carbon steel sheet less than 600 mm wide may be slit from wide sheet and will be considered as sheet.
