Source in the UK for 304N or 304HN

Source in the UK for 304N or 304HN

For a particular application we require the physical properties of an austenitic stainless (density, stiffness, expansion coefficient). The part is of size approximately 800mm by 500mm by 32mm and we are making about 24 units. AISI 304 is ideal apart from one thing, strength, however all other 300 series stainless steels have similar strength. I have seen details of high Nitrogen grades, but initial searches for a source has failed. Can anyone tell me a likely source of 304N or 304HN plate in the UK please.

Thank you in advanced.

Why don't yousimply specify a minimum yield and /or tensile for normal 304. Producers can easily meet higher mechanical properties.
