After a consultation period
, American Metal Market has discontinued its assessments for the following carbon steel products:
• Electrogalvanized sheet
• Motor lamination sheet
• Strip mill plate
• Alloy plate
American Metal Market will retain its aluminized and coiled plate assessments in light of significant market feedback. Multiple market participants told American Metal Market that the assessments for aluminized sheet
and coiled plate
are vital benchmarks in their respective industries. As a result, American Metal Market will continue to assess and publish those prices.
In addition, American Metal Market today merged its assessments for Type 316 and Type 316L stainless coil plate prices, as stated in the same previous consultation notice. These prices will now be covered under one assessment called Type 316/316L stainless coiled plate
