Accordingly, appropriate processing and quality control procedures are required by the purchaser to obtain optimum utilization of the material. Cut sizes are line-inspected line-inspected visually and mecha mechanically nically during production.

A 625/A 625M – 03 220.127.116.11 7C —A smooth ﬁnish with grit lines. The surface roughness will range from 10 to 25 µin. Ra [0.254 to 0.635 µm Ra]. This is the standard ﬁnish for tin mill products. 4.1.2 Blasted and/or Otherwise Textured Roll Finishes : 18.104.22.168 5A—A shot-blasted ﬁnish (SBF) intended for lithographing. 22.214.171.124 5C —A shot-blasted ﬁnish (SBF) for general applications. The surface roughness will range from 30 to 60 µin. Ra [0.760 to 1.52 µm Ra].
NOTE 5—In inch-pound units single-reduced black plate is supplied on an area basis expressed in base boxes. In coils, the number of base boxes is computed from the measured length and the speciﬁed width. In cut lengths, the number of base boxes is computed from the speciﬁed length and width dimensions and sheet count. For calculating mass, the density of steel for tin mill products is 0.2836 lbf/in.3. In SI units single-reduced black plate is supplied on an area basis computed in SITAs. In coils, the number of SITAs is computed from the speciﬁed length and the speciﬁed width. In cut lengths, the number of SITAs is computed from the speciﬁed length and width dimensions and sheet count. For calculating mass, the density of steel for tin mill tests is 7850 kg/m2.
5. Oiling 4. Surface Appearance and Finish
5.1 Black plate is furnished oiled or dry. Unless indicated by the purchaser, single-reduced black plate will be supplied dry. Any required oiling treatment will be negotiated between the purchaser and the supplier.
4.1 Surface Appearance—Single-reduced black plate is customarily produced with ground roll and shot-blasted roll ﬁnishes as follows: 4.1.1 Ground-Roll Finishes : 126.96.36.199 7A—A lustrous smooth ﬁnish intended for electroplating by the purchaser. 188.8.131.52 7B—A smooth ﬁnish that may contain ﬁne grit lines. This ﬁnish is speciﬁed for special applications.
6. General Requirements for Delivery 6.1 Product furnished under this speciﬁcation shall conform to the applicable requirements of the current edition of Speciﬁcation A 623 or Speciﬁcation A 623M unless otherwise provided herein.
