Description / Abstract:

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

The maximum thickness of plates is limited only by the capacity of the composition to meet the specified mechanical property requirements; however, current practice normally limits the maximum thickness of plates furnished under this specification

NOTE-The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard.

2For ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code applications see related Specification SA-SI6 in Section 11 of that Code.
