Caution should be exercised if specifiers and purchasers are being offered new product to AS Where this is not done the plate tested may not meet the requirements of the Standard.
Changes to the AS/NZS Standard (Structural Steel) – BlueScope Steel
Why is improved compliance important? Increased range of impact testing options: Local technical expertise available to assist application – a phone call away. This provision has been removed from the new Standard. Requiring the producing mill be listed on the test certificate allows you to assess the bona-fides of the material. BlueScope Steel documents a full suite of critical properties that impact post processing activities such as welding and galvanizing.
Changes to the Standard simply reflect what has been best practice at BlueScope Steel for several years.
Certificates dating back to are available online for uncoated steel. When you specify BlueScope steel you can be confident that you get the quality you have specified, and not potentially non-compliant materials that put you at jzs.
Allows specifiers to utilise a higher level Z35 of through-thickness testing than was available with the previous version of the Standard, for applications requiring welded joints with high restraint.
Requiring test certificates to be written in English ensures the test certificate can be checked for compliance and that there is aas confusion in interpreting the results.
Designs for low temperature applications L20 and L40 can be done using Australian Standards. Increases the range of service temperatures that can be specified Increases the minimum impact energy that be specified. This provides greater confidence that the material will achieve the performance required in service.
BlueScope can guarantee that BlueScope manufactured steel made to the previous Standard, yet still within distribution supply chains, will comply with the new Standard.

What options and benefits does the change to the Standard offer specifiers in terms of design? For test results to be meaningful it is important that the laboratory understands the relevant standards on how to prepare 6378 specimens and perform the tests.
Not all steel products are created equal, and the BlueScope brand is the best way to ensure high quality and industry-compliant products. Increases the range of service temperatures that can be specified Increases the minimum impact energy that be specified Designs for low temperature applications L20 and L40 can be done using Australian Standards.
Buyer Beware BlueScope can guarantee that BlueScope manufactured steel 3687 to the previous Standard, yet still within distribution supply chains, will comply with the new Standard. Useful for when fabrication requires hot forming or the component is to be normalized. The Australian Pressure Vessel Standard AS has undergone a major revision which has resulted in significant changes.
A fine-grained structure assists the material to retain strength and toughness after hot forming or normalizing.
The changes to the Standard were designed to deliver two major benefits to users: Options Benefit Increased range of impact testing options: Steels with higher toughness levels for more critical applications can be specified.
Increased range of through-thickness testing options Allows specifiers to utilise a higher level Z35 of through-thickness testing than was available with the previous version of the Standard, for applications requiring welded joints with high restraint. This simplifies technical specifications and preparations of drawings.
Improved compliance to the Standard gives the specifier and purchaser confidence that the material obtained will perform as intended in the design and use phases of the project.
This includes correct compliance information being noted on both plate stencils and test certificates, and for further assurance, ACRS Certification. The test certificate is an important reference document that reports on all elements relating to the applicable Australian Standard. Steel products comply with all aspects of the Standard – a BlueScope Steel product is always guaranteed to comply with the Standard to which it is manufactured.
In the new version they are mandated for compliance. Mandating a wider range of requirements on test certificates Requiring test certificates to be written in English ensures the test certificate can be checked for compliance and that 378 is no confusion in interpreting the results.
