Titanium Plate

Uniti announces a change to its up gauge values for Ti CP plate

Pittsburgh, PA – May 28, 2009 – For all CP plate orders shipped after July 1, 2009, Uniti will be revising the values by which it calculates the billing weight of titanium CP plate. For shipments after July 1, 2009, the previously published “up-gauge” values will be reduced by half. The revised up gauge reference chart is noted below.

The “up-gauge” is a decimal equivalent that changes for each gauge cell of plate and when added to the ordered size will reflect the nominal gauge within the given tolerance range for ASTM (see reference chart below). For example, for ASTM B 265 GR. 2 0.250″ (+0.050″, -0.010″) x 96″ x 240″, the up-gauge will be 0.010″. The theoretical billing weight will be calculated as follows; 0.163 x 0.260″ x 96″ x 240″ = 976.4 lbs. This billing method will apply to all plate orders entered directly on the mill for production.
