|Publication Date:||1 October 2003|
|ICS Code (Measuring instruments):||17.040.30|
1.1 Flatness is a significant quality characteristic of coated sheet products. Sheet flatness is affected by mill process factors plus the grade, thickness and width of the material supplied. It is the purpose of this practice to define the different flatness characteristics and to describe the method(s) most commonly used to measure particular characteristics. The methods described are designed and intended to be used in mill situations and environments.
1.2 Quantitative limits are not addressed and are established in the general requirements, or individual product specifications, or both; or when applicable, as agreed to between supplier and user.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. 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.
