European EN Standard Grade Summary

Introduction

There are now a large number of EN standards for stainless steel products. It is not always easy to know which grades belong to which standard. You can of course look through the summary of each one on this website. However, this can be quite time consuming. This article is designed to provide a quick guide to check which standard a particular grade appears in.

Standards Covered

Whilst not an exhaustive list, the most common EN standards and a few which are quite specialised are covered.

To go immediately to the Summary click here. This opens up a spreadsheet. The spreadsheet allows you to sort the list of grades in numerical order or by type. If you use this facility you will get a Security warning about Macros. Choose the option Enable Macros. The spreadsheet also contains cross references between the EN numbering system and the AISI system or generic/brand names.
