    More Data, More Speed, Same Price
    A powerful, online database, ASTM International's Passport to Steel enables you to:
    • Find over 1,700 GB steels along with their international comparable steels (ASTM, AFNOR, API, ASME, BSI, CSA, DIN, EN, GB, ISO, JIS, and SAE)
    • Search for the latest steel data of more than 80,000 steels, including over 15,000 coated steels.
    • Find comparable steel standards from standards development organizations (SDOs) around the world
    • Access an information rich Reference Center.

    Six New Features:
    • Simple/Advance Search Modes—Use Simple Search Mode to quickly find steels using the basic set of search fields or use Advanced Search Mode to access the full power, which now includes searching for chemical compositions and mechanical properties that can be searched together.
    • Show Specifications List—Generate a list of steel specifications from your search results with the click of a button
    • Show/Hide Tables—Show or hide the chemical composition, mechanical properties, and heat treatment data tables
    • Expanded heat treatment tables
    • Expanded impact testing data
    • Save your searches

    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 The status of standards — current, withdrawn, or withdrawn and replaced by — is reflected and suggestions from users are incorporated.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:

    Standard Organization
    • 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

    Steel Number
    • Search by steel number to quickly find specific steels

    UNS Number
    • Search by UNS number to quickly find specific steels

    ICS Number

    Product Form
    • 26 selections

    Alloy Group
    • 9 selections

    Chemical Compositions
    • 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

    Mechanical Properties
    • Tensile strength
    • Yield strength
    • % Elongation
    • % Reduction in Area
    • Hardness
    • Impact Strength
    • 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.
