The alloy surcharge is a price component of alloyed high quality steels, which is charged additionally to the basic price. The alloy surcharge is updated monthly. It is dependent of the alloying elements price trend, exchange rates and of the specific product. So each product such as wire, cold rolled strips an d precision strips have their own alloy surcharge. In general stainless spring steel strips are classified as precision strips. Spring steel strips with the material code 1.4310 are again sub-divided into standard strips and strips with a increased Mo content.
