The hot coil shall be inspected before production according to the following requirements:

1. to re-inspect the supplier name, contract no, grade, heat no’, coil no, specification (width and W.T.) ;

2. to store the hot coil by the same specification and heat no.;

3. to inspect the workmanship of the hot coil:

- The surface shall be clean and in well condition;

- There shall not be any defects like cracks, scar, fold, blister and inclusion etc. on the surface;

- The steel sheet may contain the dents, gouge, score, or any other imperfection that has a depth not greater than 0.3mm and guarantee the specified min. wall thickness.

- There shall not be any defects like cracks, contractive hole, lamination etc. after edge cutting.

4. Re-test of hot coil’s chemical composition and mechanical properties.

- See the “Chemical Composition Analysis” and “Mechanical Properties Test”

5. Only after the hot coil qualified by the above tests and inspection, can it be used for production; 

The unqualified hot coilshall be tagged and stored separately.
