Table 5 ---chemical  composition for PSL 2 pipe with t ≤ 25,0 mm (0.984 in) (Continued)

a    Based upon product analysis. For seamless pipe with t > 20,0 mm (0.787 in), the carbon equivalent limits shall be as agreed. The CEiiw limits apply if the carbon mass fraction is greater than 0,12 % and the CEpcm limits apply if the carbon mass fraction is
less than or equal  to 0,12 %.

b    For each reduction of 0,01 %  below the specified maximum for carbon, an increase of 0,05 % above the specified maximum for manganese is permissible, up to a maximum of  1,65 % for grades ≥ L245 or B, but ≤ L360 or X52; up to a maximum of 1,75 % for grades >L360 or  X52, but < L485  or X70; up to a maximum of 2,00 % for grades ≥L485 or X70, but ≤ L555 or X80; and up to a maximum of 2,20 % for grades >L555 or X80.

c    Unless otherwise agreed , the sum of the niobium and vanadium concentrations shall be ≤ 0,06 %.

d    The sum of the niobium, vanadium and titanium concentrations shall be ≤ 0,15 %.

e    Unless otherwise agreed, 0,50 % maximum for copper, 0,30 % maximum for nickel, 0,30 % maximum for chromium and 0,15 % maximum for molybdenum.

   Unless otherwise agreed.

g   Unless otherwise agreed, the sum of the niobium, vanadium and titanium concentrations shall be ≤ 0,15 %.

h   Unless otherwise agreed, 0,50 % maximum for copper, 0,50 % maximum for nickel, 0,50 % maximum for chromium and 0,50 % maximum for molybdenum.

i    Unless otherwise agreed,  0,50 % maximum for copper, 1,00 % maximum for nickel,  0,50 % maximum for chromium and 0,50 % maximum for molybdenum.

j    0,004 % maximum for boron.

9.2 Chemical compostion

9.2.4    For PSL 2 pipe with a product analysis carbon mass fraction equal to or less than 0,12 %, the carbon equivalent, CEpcm, shall be determined using Equation (2):            
                                 

where the symbols for the chemical elements represent the mass fraction in percent (see Table 5).

.If the heat analysis for boron is less than 0,000 5 % then it is not necessary for the product analysis to include boron, and the boron content may be considered to be zero for the CEpcm calculation.
 
9.2.5     For PSL 2 pipe with a product analysis carbon mass fraction greater than 0,12 % the carbon  equivalent, CEllw shall be determined using Equation (3):           

                                


where the symbols for the chemical elements represent the mass fraction in percent (see Table  5).

NOTE: A derogation from the ISO rules for the presentation of chemical equations has been granted for Equations (2) and (3) in deference to their longstanding use in the industry.

For intermediate grades higher than Grade L555 or X80, the maximum permissible tensile strength shall be obtained by interpolation.
