Keeping Standards up-to-date


Standards are living documents which reflect progress in science, technology and
systems. To maintain their currency, all Standards are periodically reviewed, and
new editions are published. Between editions, amendments may be issued.
Standards may also be withdrawn. It is important that readers assure themselves
they are using a current Standard, which should include any amendments which
may have been published since the Standard was purchased.
Detailed information about joint Australian/New Zealand Standards can be found by
visiting the Standards Web Shop at www.saiglobal.com.au or Standards New
Zealand web site at www.standards.co.nz and looking up the relevant Standard in
the on-line catalogue.
For more frequent listings or notification of revisions, amendments and
withdrawals, Standards Australia and Standards New Zealand offer a number of
update options. For information about these services, users should contact their
respective national Standards organization.
We also welcome suggestions for improvement in our Standards, and especially
encourage readers to notify us immediately of any apparent inaccuracies or
ambiguities. Please address your comments to the Chief Executive of either
Standards Australia or Standards New Zealand at the address shown on the back
cover.

This Standard was issued in draft form for comment as DR 94446.

PREFACE
This Standard was prepared by the Joint Standards Australia/Standards New Zealand
Committee MT-001, Iron and Steel, to supersede AS 13651986.
This Standard incorporates Amendment No. 1 (April 2014). The changes required by the
Amendment are indicated in the text by a marginal bar and amendment number against the
clause, note, table, figure or part thereof affected.
The objective of this Standard is to specify dimensional tolerances for flat-rolled steel
products excluding stainless and heat-treated steels. The 1986 edition was amended in
September 1992 to alter the width tolerances of untrimmed plate and floorplate.

This is a free 6 page sample. Access the full version online.

This Standard gives an option of two classes of tolerance (A and B) for plate and strip
rolled on a continuous mill, and for cold-rolled sheet and strip. These classes apply to
flatness on hot-rolled product and to thickness, flatness, width and length on cold-rolled
sheet and strip. The tighter Class B tolerances should only be specified in cases where the
product requires stringent tolerance control.
In the preparation of this Standard cognizance was taken of the following International
Standards:
ISO
3573:1986

Hot-rolled carbon steel sheet of commercial and drawing qualities

3574:1986

Cold-reduced carbon steel sheet of commercial and drawing qualities

4960:1986

Cold-reduced carbon steel strip with a carbon content over 0.25%

4995:1993

Hot-rolled steel sheet of structural quality

4996:1991

Hot-rolled steel sheet of high yield stress structural quality

4997:1991

Cold-reduced steel sheet of structural quality

5001:1993

Cold-reduced carbon steel sheet for vitreous enamelling

5951:1993

Hot-rolled steel sheet of higher yield strength with improved formability

6316:1993

Hot-rolled steel strip of structural quality

6317:1982

Hot-rolled carbon steel strip of commercial and drawing qualities

6932:1986

Cold-reduced carbon steel strip with a maximum carbon content of 0.25%

7452:1984

Hot-rolled structural steel platesTolerances on dimensions and shape

9034:1987

Hot-rolled structural steel wide flatsTolerances on dimensions and shape

All of these International Standards, except ISO 7452 and ISO 9034, specify general
properties in addition to dimensional tolerances, for various types of flat-rolled steel
products. The Standards ISO 7452 and ISO 9034 specifically cover dimensional tolerances
for hot-rolled structural steel plates and wide flats but are not applicable to thicknesses
below 3 mm and 4 mm respectively.
Australian/New Zealand industry considers that there are considerable advantages in having
requirements for dimensional tolerances for all types of flat-rolled steel products in the one
Standard.
In this edition steepness ratio is included as an alternative method for expressing flatness
and a method for measuring out-of-squareness is specified.
The terms normative and informative have been used in this Standard to define the
application of the appendix to which they apply. A normative appendix is an integral part
of a Standard, whereas an informative appendix is only for information and guidance.

1.1 SCOPE

This is a free 6 page sample. Access the full version online.

This Standard specifies dimensional tolerances for flat-rolled steels (uncoated, metalliccoated or organic-coated), other than stainless, high alloy and quenched and tempered
steels, as follows:
(a)

Wide slabs.

(b)

Plate and floorplate rolled on a reversing mill.

(c)

Hot-rolled plate, floorplate, sheet and strip rolled on a continuous mill.

(d)

Cold-rolled sheet and strip.

For coated products, thickness tolerances apply to the base metal only.
NOTE: Widths and thicknesses given in tables do not necessarily indicate availability in Australia
or New Zealand, and enquiries in this regard should be directed to suppliers.

1.3 DEFINITIONS
For the purpose of this Standard, the definitions below apply.
1.3.1 Cold-rolled sheet

A1

1.3.3.2 Untrimmed edge


The edge produced by hot rolling between horizontal rolls, with or without vertical edging
rolls. Also referred to as mill or universal edge.
