Special Grades of Stainless Steel - Where to Find Them

Having decided that you want to use stainless steel, it is usually quite straightforward to find the standard grades like 1.4301/1.4307 (304/304L) or 1.4401/1.4404 (316/316L). The BSSA Find a Supplier guide will help you with the standard grades.

For the more unusual grades, the user is directed to:

Special Grades Supplied by BSSA Companies

NOTE. THIS SPREADSHEET CONTAINS HYPERLINKS. USERS ARE ADVISED NOT TO USE THE SORT FUNCTIONALITY AS THERE IS A KNOWN "BUG" IN EXCEL WHICH SCRAMBLES HYPERLINKS WHEN SORTING.

This is an initial attempt to provide information on special grades. It is recognised that there are some obvious "holes" in the data. However, on the assumption that "something" is better than nothing, the available data is being published now. It is planned that more data will be added soon.

The table below shows grades where at least one BSSA Member has declared a capability to supply it:
