The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:

This specification covers standard requirements for sheet steel in coils and cut lengths for porcelain enameling. Heat analysis of Type I, Type II, and Type III steels shall conform to the prescribed chemical composition for carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, and others. However, an exception is made on carbon, since heat analysis of carbon is not appropriate for Type I. The material shall also conform to the required mechanical properties such as bending and formability.



1.1 This specification covers sheet steel in coils and cut lengths for porcelain enameling. The compositions and processing of these steels are such that articles for porcelain enameling may be fabricated from them and, under proper conditions, enameled. The steels are furnished as Type I, Type II, and Type III. Type I and Type II are supplied in two designations, Commercial Steel and Drawing Steel. Type III steel is interstitial-free and does not require a designation.

1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

1.3 Tolerances are found in General Requirements Specifications A 568/A 568M and A 635/A 635M. The appropriate General Requirements specification is applied based on the thickness and width of the product ordered.
