1Heavy Plate

Hot-rolled carbon steel plate and high-strength low-alloy steel plate not further manufactured than hot-rolled, heat-treated or not, in widths from 80 inches (± 2,030 mm) to 152 inches (± 3,860 mm), and thicknesses from 0.375 inches (± 9.525 mm) to 4.0 inches (101.6 mm), with all dimensions being plus or minus allowable tolerances contained in the applicable standards. For greater certainty, these dimensional restrictions apply to steel plate, that contains alloys greater than required by recognized industry standards provided that the steel does not meet recognized industry standards for an alloy-specification steel plate.

The following goods are excluded:

  • (a) all plate in coil form;

  • (b) all plate having a rolled, raised figure at regular intervals on the surface (also known as floor plate);

  • (c) hot-rolled carbon steel plate produced to the following specifications and grades, namely, ASME SA516/SA516M or ASTM A516/A516M, normalized, ASME SA299/SA299M or ASTM A299/A299M, normalized, and ASME SA537/SA537M or ASTM A537/A537M, normalized, in the following dimensions:

    • (i) 2 inches thick, greater than or equal to 97 inches wide and greater than 473 inches long,

    • (ii) 2 inches thick, greater than or equal to 121 inches wide and greater than 380 inches long,

    • (iii) 2 inches thick, greater than or equal to 150 inches wide and greater than 270 inches long,

    • (iv) 2.25 inches thick, greater than or equal to 97 inches wide and greater than 420 inches long,

    • (v) 2.25 inches thick, greater than or equal to 121 inches wide and greater than 330 inches long,

    • (vi) 2.25 inches thick, greater than or equal to 151 inches wide and of any length,

    • (vii) 2.5 inches thick, greater than or equal to 97 inches wide and greater than 380 inches long,

    • (viii) 2.5 inches thick, greater than or equal to 121 inches wide and greater than 300 inches long,

    • (ix) 2.5 inches thick, greater than or equal to 151 inches wide and of any length,

    • (x) 2.75 inches thick, greater than or equal to 97 inches wide and greater than 340 inches long,

    • (xi) 2.75 inches thick, greater than or equal to 121 inches wide and of any length,

    • (xii) 3 inches thick, greater than or equal to 97 inches wide and greater than 250 inches long,

    • (xiii) 3 inches thick, greater than or equal to 121 inches wide and of any length,

    • (xiv) 3.25 inches thick, greater than or equal to 97 inches wide and of any length, or

    • (xv) greater than or equal to 3.5 inches thick of any width and length;

  • (d) hot-rolled carbon steel plate in grade ASME SA516 Grade 70 or ASTM A516 Grade 70, normalized in thicknesses greater than or equal to 3.25 inches and widths greater than or equal to 97 inches;

  • (e) hot-rolled carbon steel plate in grade ASME SA516 Grade 70 or ASTM A516 Grade 70, normalized (heat treated) with a thickness greater than 3.28 inches;

  • (f) hot-rolled carbon steel plate manufactured to the following specifications and grades, namely,

    • (i) ASME SA285/SA285M or ASTM A285/A285M,

    • (ii) ASME SA299/SA299M or ASTM A299/A299M,

    • (iii) ASME SA515/SA515M or ASTM A515/A515M,

    • (iv) ASME SA516/SA516M or ASTM A516/A516M (including ASME SA516 Grade 70 or ASTM A516 Grade 70),

    • (v) ASME SA537/SA537M or ASTM A537/A537M, or

    • (vi) ASME SA841/SA841M or ASTM A841/A841M,

    which is normalized (heat treated) or vacuum degassed (including while molten) with a sulphur content less than 0.005 % and a phosphorus content less than or equal to 0.017 %, imported exclusively for use in the manufacture of pressure vessels for the oil and gas sector for use in sour service and hydrogen-induced cracking applications;

  • (g) high-strength low-alloy structural steel plate in grade ASTM A1066/A1066M, produced by thermo-mechanical controlled process;

  • (h) hot-rolled carbon steel plate for use in the manufacture of oil and gas line pipe (also known as skelp); and

  • (i) hot-rolled carbon steel plate in grades API 5L X70 PSL2 or CSA Grade 483 Category II for use in the manufacture of oil and gas line pipe.
