(OP)
What is the equivalent of this material?
What does BF means in 16MnCrS5 BF?
What does TH means in 16MnCrS5+TH?

RE: 16MnCrS5

BF stands for BreitFlach;
It's german, meaning "large sheet"
+TH means "treated to hardness range"
meaning the steel has been treated to reached a certain hardness.

yup, understood...tq vr much :)

RE: 16MnCrS5

Paul,

I wasn't passing judgement on your translation.  The sheet has thee linear dimensions, and Breit refers to one of them, specifically the width.
