A sample of equally coated material may be tested to cover single-surface coated material. Electrogalvanized Hot Rolled and Cold Reduced Carbon Steel Sheets and Strips must also meet the standard's requirements.


The following test shall be done in accordance with the method specified.

  • Coating Mass Test
  • Coating Adherence Test
  • Dimensions, Shape and Tolerance Test

Packing and Marking:

Packing and marking must be done as per the requirements of IS 17404:2020. The standard mark (ISI mark) shall be incorporated on the top of each coil or package of the sheet, provided that the product thus marked meets the requirements of the specification.
