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.


230M07Pb grade steel is a non-alloyed free cutting steel with excellent machinability. It is ideal for parts requiring significant material removal and close tolerances.

The addition of Lead (Pb) as well as high Sulphur and Phosphorus lubricates the tooling at minimal reduction of strength, when compared with non- leaded version of this grade.

This grade is not recommended for welded applications.

Size Range

10mm - 80mm Dia

Typical applications of 230M07Pb grade steel

  • Nuts, bolts and other volume machining parts.

230M07Pb steel is still often referred to as EN1A steel - its equivalent grade under the previous BS 970: 1955 standard.
