Flatness is measured as the maximum deviation from a horizontal flat service.
Tables show the permissible deviations from flat for plates up to 4 metre in length or for any 4 metre length of longer plates.
For carbon steels with a carbon content higher than 0.33%, the values in Table are increased by 50%.
JR = Impact @ Room Temperature (Optional)
JO = Impact @ Zero Degrees (27J)
J2 = Impact @ -20 Degrees (27J)
K2 = Impact @ -20 Degrees (27J); Also correspond to 27J @ -30 Degrees
G2 = Rimming Steel is not permitted
G3 = Normalised
G4 = Supply condition at the manufacturers discretion
AR = As Rolled
N = Normalised
