Steel alert for welding trades

The UK certification authority for reinforcing steels is to investigate quantities of boron in imported Chinese rebar after warnings from the trade association, UK Steel.


UK Steel is suggesting that Chinese data indicates that its exported rebar contains small amounts of other elements to qualify the steel as an alloy, and so benefit from an export tax rebate. It said a “significant but unknown proportion” of Chinese rebar sold in the UK contains boron in excess of 8 parts per million and that samples had been tested with boron at 30 parts per million.
