UK Steel launches 14th Edition of the Steel Specifications Book

04 Apr 2013

All the latest steel standards you need - all in one place.


Steel Specifications is the essential reference tool for engineers, architects, designers and material scientists. With 64 of the principal standards updated and 32 new standards added since the last edition was published it contains the information you need for specifying, procuring or supplying steel.















Published by UK Steel, this comprehensive catalogue is cross-referenced by application, property and supplier.

The guide includes:

  • The data you need with notes providing qualification and explanation and an index to help you find the standard in which a steel grade appears.
  • The chemical and mechanical composition as well as the physical properties of British/European standard steels and most of the popular US steel standards.
  • Essential contact details of UK Steel producers and organisations that can provide advice on “equivalents” and on steel usage in particular applications.
  • Helpful and easy-to-follow information on steel designation systems and the steel standards process in general.

The Steel specifications 14th edition costs £150 (£125 to BSSA members)
