    What is the bar stock that is equal to SME 516/70 plate?

  5. Naim Chebel Naim Chebel Lebanon says:

    What is the equivalent of SA 516 grad 70 or 60 in other standard?

    • Paul Murphy Paul Murphy United Kingdom says:

      Naim, Apologies for the delay in getting back to you.

      In the EN10028 standard P265GH is the equivalent for Gr 60 & P355GH is the equivalent for Gr 70.

      Hope this helps,
