Carbon Steel

Yes, we’re the UK's Ultimate Stainless Steel processing centre – but that’s not all.

We also have a dedicated Carbon Steel processing shop!

Our Carbon shop is situated in a different unit at our head office site so there is no chance of cross-contamination with our Stainless processing. This has allowed us to increase our stocked range of Carbon Steel, ideal for applications where affordability and hardness matter.


We now have hundreds of tonnes more material in stock and a full range of Carbon Steel from 3mm up to 100mm thickness in the most popular grades

S275 Steel

S275 is a low Carbon Steel grade meeting the European standard EN 10025-2, commonly used in general construction, including buildings, bridges and structural components where moderate strength is sufficient.

The "S" in S275 stands for structural steel, while the number denotes the minimum yield strength of the steel in megapascals (MPa). In this case, S275 has a minimum yield strength of 275 MPa. 

S275 steel is known for its strength, workability and affordability, making it widely used in various applications.

S355 Steel

S355 is a higher strength Carbon Steel, also meeting EN 10025-2, preferred in applications where higher strength is required such as heavy construction, offshore structures and components subjected to significant loads. Similar to S275, the "S" in S355 stands for structural steel, while the number denotes the minimum yield strength of the steel in megapascals (MPa). S355 has a minimum yield strength of 355 MPa.

We also have S355 Carbon Steel available with the S355 J2+N designation. The "J2" indicates that the steel has been subjected to longitudinal Charpy V-notch impact testing at -20°C to ensure its toughness, with a minimum impact energy of 27 Joules at this temperature. The "+N" suffix indicates that the steel is supplied in normalised or normalised rolled condition.

We’re also accredited to BS EN 1090 Execution Class 4 which is the highest execution class assigned for  structural applications, and our Carbon Steel shop also meets our ISO 19443 Nuclear quality standards for the highest integrity applications.


Couple this with our full suite of Carbon Steel plasma, waterjet and laser cutting machines, and we’re ready to produce the parts you require, when you need them.
