First in China, the new standard gives way to the mass production of HIC plates, from technology development, product design to equipment manufacturing, from products to sales.
Together with China Metallurgical Information and Standardization Institute partners, HBIS Wusteel led the process and the teams studied the current status of HIC plates, both domestic steel industry and abroad. They collected the relevant standardization information and references to launch their own analysis, queries, subsequent experiments, summary and conclusions, all contributing to and final compile National HIC Plate Standard.
