Surcharge Information

Due to the UK’s mostly commonly recognised surcharge mechanism no longer being openly published to the UK market we are unable to provide specific surcharge information on our website at this stage.

We are currently working with our suppliers to establish alternative mechanisms in order to provide a comprehensive and transparent view of global surcharge variations.

Look out for our improved surcharge pages appearing in the coming weeks.

Description

This grade also has excellent weldability, however care should be taken to avoid weld cracking.

Machinability is approximately 80% of that of mild steel.
