We provide ASTM A193 B8A solutions which serve a number of industries across the oil and gas sector.

ASTM A193 Grade B8A is an austenitic stainless steel used throughout the Oil and Gas industry as a cost-effective material for general connections including valves, flanges, and fittings where corrosion protection is required. Provided as standard in a class 1A solution annealed condition for general use. B8A differs from standard ASTM A193 B8 material in that the finished form undergoes a further final carbide solution treatment to soften the material for use in specific application.

LoneStar Fasteners Europe offer ASTM A193 Grade B8A in commercial grades, covering the basic requirements of ASTM A193, but can also offer with supplementary testing meeting additional requirements of the standard or to meet the demands of OEM or international accredited certification bodies.
