Steel scrap shall be free of dirt, nonferrous metals, or foreign material of any kind, and excessive rust and corrosion. However the terms "free of dirt, nonferrous metals or foreign material of any kind" are not intended to preclude the accidental inclusion of the negligible amounts where it can be shown that this amount is unavoidable in the customary preparation and handling of this steel grade.
A tolerance of maximum 0.75 % impurities to be acceptable for any lot traded by us.
The inclusion in the shipment of this grade iron and steel scrap shall be of a negligible amount of metallic material which exceeds to a minor extent the applicable size limitations, or which fails to a minor extent to meet the applicable requirements as to quality or kind of material, shall not change the classification of the shipment, provided it can be shown that the inclusion of such off-grade material is unavoidable in the customary preperation and handling of the grade involved.
Wherever the term "free of alloys" is used in the classification given herein, it shall mean that any alloys in the steel are residual and have not been added for the purpose of making an alloy steel. Steel scrap shall be considered free of alloys when the residual alloying elements do not exceed the following percentages;
Copper ..................... 0,40 %
Nickel ................... 0,45 %
Chromium ............. 0,20 %
Molybdenum .......... 0,10 %
Manganese ............ 1,65 %
The combined residuals other than manganese and copper shall not exceed a total of 0,60 percent.
