1.1 This specification covers carbon steel plates, forging quality, intended for forging, quenching-and-temper
1.2 The plates are available in six grades, or chemical compositions.
1.3 When the steel is to be welded, it is presupposed that a welding procedure suitable for the grade of steel and intended use or service will be utilized. See Appendix X 3 of Specification A 6/A 6M for information on weldability.
1.4 The values stated in either inch-pound or SI units are to be regarded as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets.
