There is another way to look at it.
If the steel deignated as, "150X150X20 UC" than this is a "Universal Column Section" (Hot-rolled I-Beam) and
"150X125X20 UB" than this is a " Universal Beam Section" (Hot-Rolled I-Beam) with the 20 being the weight of the two beam in kg.
150mm Deep and 150mm flange width for 150x150x20
150mm Deep and 125mm flange width for 150x125x20
I couldn't find these sections in my table though.
But this doesn't really makes sense because the the two weighted the same but has different cross-section. It was only a thought.

Could it be cold-formed sections, one with a typo? The 1996 AISI designates a C-section without lips as CU, and a C-section with lips as CS (maybe 'CB' is really 'CS'). Perhaps 20 is not really 20mm, but 0.20mm (which is how the light-gage thicknesses are noted in the 1996 AISI).
