Commercial quality, cold rolled carbon steel sheet/coils per JIS G3141, 'COLD-REDUCED CARBON STEEL SHEETS AND STRIPS' (28 pages, in English). Both low carbon & mild steel grades may be available, and a suffix may be added to indicate hardness. Similar to ASTM A1008/A1008M [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet] (supersedes A366/A366M).Ken Vlach

SPCC is a grade of commercial steel (commercial quality) referenced in the Japanese standard JIS G3141. It is similar to the CS grades in ASTM A 1008 and A 1008M.Toby Padfield

Can anyone please advice me on the difference between SPCD-SD and SPCC-SB/SD. At the present moment, I'm using SPCD-SD. Can I switch from SPCD-SD to SPCC-SB or SPCC-SD? There will be tin plating done on the material before going through the stamping process. Both these materials are from the cold rolled steel family.
Thanks in advance.
