EN Steel

EN steel specifications stockholders and suppliers, delivering to the whole of the UK. The EN range of steel specifications was first introduced in 1941 as the War Emergency, British Standard Schedule BS970. With the assistance of the Technical Advisory Committee of the Special & Alloy Steels Committee the British Standards Institute published 58 specifications (EN1 to EN58). These steels covered a variety of types including carbon steels, alloy steels, case hardening steels, spring steels and stainless steels. The grades were arranged sequentially according to the chemical composition, starting with low carbon grades EN1, EN2 and EN3 working up to stainless steel grades EN56, EN57 and EN58. IN 1955 the BS970 EN range of steel specifications was revised to add further steel grades.

No allowance had been made in the 1941 edition for a possible insertion of further steel grades and the British Standards Institution considered that to have applied a high EN number would have divorced the grades completely from steels of similar types. Therefore with numerous grades suffix letters were added (for example EN19 became EN19A, EN19B and EN19C). The BS970 1955 revision of the standard increased the number of specifications to nearly 200.
