Data Sheets

Stainless Steel // General Information // EN Standards for Stainless Steel H.R. Plate

For Hot Rolled stainless steel the old BS1449 and BS1501 standards have been replaced by EN Standards:

EN10088-2 Replaces BS1449-Part 2: 1983

EN10028-7 Replaces BS1501-Part3: 1990

EN10095 Covers Heat Resisting Grades

EN10259 & ISO 9445: Tolerances for COLD Rolled material (Sheets, plate, coil) up to 6.5mm thick

EN10029 & ISO 18286: Tolerances for 'Quarto' Hot Rolled Plate 3mm thick and above

EN10051 & Now ISO 9445 / 9444: Tolerances for Continuosly Produced (CPP) Hot Rolled Plate

Material Certification

Where multi-certification is required, a combination of EN10088-2, EN10028-7, EN10029 or 10051 will appear together with the appropriate ASTM Standards.


For Cold Rolled Plate please refer to the datasheet on cold rolled


Note that in this Datasheet there are two sets of tolerances tables – One set for Quarto Plate to EN10029 and one set for CPP plate to EN10051


For CPP there are 3 categories of tolerances according to the grade where:

B = Ferritic & Martensitic Grades

C = Austenitic Grades without Mo

D = Austenitic Grades with Mo
