If you specify, purchase or supply steel BS EN 10083-1:2006 has been developed by technical experts as an invaluable to guide to the Standard purchase specifications and delivery conditions of semi-finished, hot formed products such as:-

wide flats
hot-rolled strip and sheet/plate
BS EN 10083-1:2006 should be read in conjunction with BSEN 10083-2:2006 and BS EN 10083-3:2006.

This Standard does not cover bright steel products (see BS EN 10277 series) or continuously cast semi-finished products for which special arrangements must be made.

BS EN 10083-1:2006, concentrates on the general supply conditions; the detailed specifications of the steels themselves being defined in part 2 (non alloy steels) and part 3 (alloy steels).

The steels are generally intended for the manufacture of quenched and tempered, flame and induction hardened machine parts, but alternatively may be supplied in the normalized condition.
