Convert European Board Specs to ECT

Jeff asks,

We have a customer that is based in Germany and is opening a branch in Tennessee.

They gave us some specs with the below board grades:

2.91BCB (alternative 2.91 AC)

2.70BC

2.91ACA

2.30BC

1.40C

We need to convert them to ECT values.

Do you have any information on how I can convert them?

 

Jeff, usually the metric equivalent to our pounds force per linear inch is expressed in kN/m but in this case I believe we are looking at kg-f/in so you need to divide their requirement by 0.038 to obtain the equivalent Imperial value. We have compiled a list of conversions that you may find helpful. (English Metric board conversions)

Conversions for grades listed above would be,

2.91BCB (alternative 2.91 AC)   — 76 ECT BCB Triplewall or AC Doublewall

2.70BC — 71 ECT BC Doublewall

2.91ACA — 76 ECT ACA Triplewall

2.30BC — 61 ECT BC Doulbewall

1.40C — 37 ECT C Singlewall
