Similar Grades

Grades of similar (not identical) chemistry. Please note the similar grades are based on chemistry only, and may not meet the necessary mechanical properties (in the standard ‘as stocked’ state).

Grades for Potential Substitution

Grades capable of achieving similar mechanical properties (material may need further treatment to achieve the desired properties). The potential substitution grades are based on mechanical properties, not necessarily the chemical analysis.
