HOW IT WORKS

Registration is free and once you are a registered you will have access to a wealth of dynamic information directly from the site. From within the site you can download or print documents directly to your devices and communicate with us via email to solicit additional information on specifications, prices, forecasts or industry data.

Tools

  • Specification Tool - Empowers the User to enter a steel specification from a pulldown and our proprietary software translates that spec into the standard steel producer nomenclature.
  • Pricing Tool - Once the steel specification is determined the User can enter a thickness and width and the software returns an estimated Spot Price Breakdown showing base price, grade extra, size extra, etc.
  • Steel Demand Tool – The User is empowered to find actual and forecast NAFTA steel demand by Product/Market for CY1991- 2021 by month.
  • Coil Calculator Tool – The User can input known values and the software calculates missing data. The Tool works with steel and Aluminum using Imperial or Metric units of measure.
  • Thickness Tolerance Tool – (Under Development) The user can lookup sheet tolerances by imperial/Metric by Thickness/Width by strength level.
  • Coating Weight Converter Tool (Under Development) Users can get an instant conversion of zinc coating weight and thickness in Imperial and metric units of measure.
  • Chemistry Tool – (Under Development) The User can lookup Minimum, Maximum and Typical chemistry by SI Grade (see Specification Tool).
  • Mechanical Property Tool – (Under Development) The User can lookup Minimum, Maximum and Typical mechanical properties by SI Grade (See Specification Tool)
Industry data includes U.S. Steel Imports, facility outages, producer financial results and consumption forecasts for selected markets. We are developing a NAFTA steel industry facilities list for the benefit of our registered users.
