European Standardisation

The background to the publication of EN10088 parts 1, 2 and 3 and EN10095 is described. Part 1 covers chemical compositions and some physical properties of the European stainless steel grades. Part 2 covers flat products ie sheets and plates, with their mechanical properties and replaces BS1449 part 2 1983. Part 3 covers long products ie bars and sections and replaces BS970 part 1. EN10095 covers Heat Resisting Steels and Nickel Alloys in all product forms. These only cover ?general engineering? purposes. Pressure purposes are covered by EN10028 part 7 (flat products) and EN 10272 (long products). A summary table of standards is shown, which includes the separate dimensional tolerance standards
