BS EN 10088-1:2014 has been updated

BS EN 10088-1:2014

What is BS EN 10088-1- Stainless steel specifications about? 

BS EN 10088 is a series of European standards on stainless steel that discusses characteristics of stainless steel and the best procedures and specifications required for manufacturing high-quality stainless steel. BS EN 10088-1 is the first part of a series of documents on stainless steel. BS EN 10088-1 lists the chemical composition of stainless steels, which are subdivided by their main properties into corrosion resisting steels, heat-resisting steels, and creep resisting steels.

Who is BS EN 10088-1- Stainless steel specifications for? 

BS EN 10088-1 on stainless steel is relevant to:

  • Manufacturer of stainless steel
  • Stainless steel research laboratories

Why should you use 10088-1- Stainless steel specifications?

Stainless steel is a durable and affordable metal that is used for a wide variety of purposes. It’s strong, making it perfect for construction purposes, and it’s corrosion-resistant, so it can last a long time without being replaced or breaking.

BS EN 10088-1 on stainless steel offers the most up-to-date guidance on specifications and composition of materials relating to stainless steel products. It lists the chemical composition of stainless steels, subdivided by their main properties into:

  • Corrosion resisting steels
  • Heat-resisting steels
  • Creep resisting steels

As a user of BS EN 10088-1, you can be ensured of the chemical composition of stainless steel. With obedience and compliance to BS EN 10088-1, you can efficiently manufacture high-quality stainless steel for the desired purpose. BS EN 10088-1 helps you to build consumer trust and confidence in the product. With BS EN 10088-1 you can be ensured that the products consistently meet and exceed quality assurance targets.

What’s changed since the last update? 

BS EN 10088-1:2014 supersedes BS EN 10088-1:2005 which is withdrawn.
