We’ve tried to present the most common comparison grades below in a couple of different formats. The focus is mainly on American (ASTM and ASME) and Euronorms (EN10028) grades.

Grades and equivalents table:

ASME | ASTM | DIN17155 | EN10028 | BS1501 | |

Name | Number | ||||

SA 516 60 | A 516 60 | HII | P265GH | 1.0425 | 161 430A |

SA 516 65 | A 516 65 | 17Mn4 | P295GH | 1.0481 | |

SA 516 70 | A 516 70 | P355GH | 224-490 A & B |

ASME and ASTM grades are directly comparable and are often written A/SA 516 or SA/A 516 which is the same as A516 or SA516. ASTM (which is derived from the American Society for Testing and Materials) and ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) work closely together and many of their standards are harmonised.

For EN 10028 P indicates that it is a pressure grade steel. The number is the yield strength when the plate is less than 16mm thick.

N indicates room temperature quality,

NH steels are for elevated temperature,

NL1 steels are of low temperature quality and NL2 steel – special low temperature quality.

GH steels are for elevated temperature working.
