Course Description
Join us for an in-depth webinar aimed at providing invaluable guidance on navigating the complexities of coil selection for structural and non-structural applications. We'll delve into crucial factors such as grade, ksi, base metal thickness, and coating weight, with a focus on adhering to IBC and AISI code references and SFIA program requirements. By dissecting ASTM standards A1003 and A653, we'll discuss the differences between the two and offer insights into their reliability for obtaining minimum thicknesses required in the SFIA Stud Code Compliance Certification Program. Learn essential considerations when purchasing coil, including the importance of mill certifications and the pros and cons of buying slit versus full coil. Gain expert advice on optimizing your coil procurement process to ensure you're investing in the right materials efficiently.
