CEN steel standard prefixes

CEN steel standard prefixes

CEN steel standard prefixes

Does anyone know where I can find a description of CEN steel standard suffixes? I am mostly interested in suffixes for products belonging to EN 10025 & EN 10113. For instance:

S355M, S355ML, S355N, S355NL, S355J2G2W, etc.

RE: CEN steel standard prefixes

description of CEN steel standard suffixes --> see EN10027-1
Suffix :
M : Thermomechanical normalisation
L : Low temp
N : Normalized
J : Impact test 27J R/0/2/3/4/5/6 = 20°C/0/-20/-30/-40/-50/-60
K : Impact test 40J : idem for R/0/2/3/4/5/6
L : Impact test 60J : idem for R/0/2/3/4/5/6

G1 : Normalized or "normalized and rolled"
G2 : at manufacturer convinience

Hope it helps
