Faster Than Ever
You'll find the steels data you need in only a few seconds with 10 robust search options, including 26 product forms and 9 alloy groups. Search tips and other helpful hints are just a click away in this convenient and easy-to-use resource.
Timely, Reliable, and Thorough
The timeliness and reliability of the data in Passport to Steel make it second-to-none thanks to a team of engineers and technical experts continually studying changes to the standards and revising and expanding the database. The status of standards current, withdrawn, or withdrawn and replaced by is reflected and suggestions from users are incorporated. Your annual subscription includes updates to the latest data no CDs or software to update throughout the year.
Comprehensive Source of Global Standards
The database includes steel data from 11 SDOs including: ASTM, ASME, AFNOR, API, SAE, DIN, BSI, CEN, CSA, JIS, and ISO. You can easily search by:
SDOs can be searched individually or as user-defined grouping
Search by keywords and phrases
Search for standards by number or alpha numeric designation
Search by steel grade, class, type, symbol, name or any combination of these
Search by steel number to quickly find specific steels
Search by UNS number to quickly find specific steels
Search 36 elements using nominal values, minimums, maximums, a range of values or use wildcards for single or multiple characters can be used to increase your searching power
Include carbon equivalence requirement as part of your search with the formula displayed in search results
% Reduction in Area
Search by Absorbed Energy at Temperature (average and single test data, full and sub-size specimen data, and test orientation); data results also include Lateral Expansion at Temperature (average and single test data, full and sub-size specimen data, and test orientation) where specified
Finding Comparable Steels from Around the World Made Easy
Using the built-in "Search for Comparable Steels" option, based on written rules for comparison, finding similar steels from other countries is made quick and easy. Or you can customize your own search to find all matching steels with any other searching parameters you choose. It's your choice, either way this powerful search engine will help you find what you are looking for in just a few seconds.
Passport to Steel also includes the most current chemical composition and mechanical properties of:
