The range of carbon and alloy engineering steels in both black and bright conditions and can be supplied as rolled, normalised, annealed or hardened & tempered.

Some of the grades we supply:

070M20 (EN3A) – Non-alloyed Low Carbon Steel

MATERIAL DESCRIPTION: A mild steel used for general engineering purposes. Suitable
for low stressed fixings, shafts, rollers etc. Good machining and weldability. Used where heavy
stresses and heat treatment are not involved. Swarf will be in long continuous strands.


070M55 (EN9) Non-alloyed .55% Medium Carbon Steel

MATERIAL DESCRIPTION: A medium carbon, high tensile steel with good wear resistant
properties. Suitable for gears, cylinders, camshafts and surface hardened parts. Suitable for
heat treatment.

080M40 (EN8) Non-alloyed .40% Medium Carbon Steel

MATERIAL DESCRIPTION: A medium carbon, medium tensile steel. Used mainly for axles,
spindles, studs, automotive and general engineering components. Suitable for heat treatment where extra strength is required. Material capable of through hardening by quenching and tempering but is commonly supplied in the untreated condition.

230M07 (EN1A) Non-alloyed Free Machining Steel

MATERIAL DESCRIPTION: A low carbon steel designed for high speed machining for multi turned parts. Controlled analysis to ensure consistent quality and maximum tool life.
Suitable for automatic lathes and CNC machines. Swarf will form in small chips to prevent blockage of machinery.



MATERIAL DESCRIPTION: As an unalloyed low carbon mild steel grade S355 is supplied in
the hot rolled condition. The S355 steel specifications are high yield non alloy steels. First
specified in the European EN10025 standard and later published by the British Standards Institute
(BSI) as BS EN 10025 S355, S355J2 and S355J2+N. These standards superseded the BS4360 grades. The average minimum yield for this material is 355 N/mm², hence the name S355
A medium tensile, low carbon manganese steel which is readily weldable and possess good
impact resistance. Machinability is similar to that of mild steel.
