BS S98, along with S99 is the British aerospace equivalent of 826M40. A 2 1/2% Nickel-Chrome-Moly high carbon steel, it is available in bars and forgings. S98 is generally supplied as bright bar for machining, in the finally heat treated and cold drawn/groun condition, designated BS S98D. Other conditions are S98B (black bar for machining, finally heat treated), S98A (billets for forging, softened) and S98C (forgings, finally heat treated).
