Often referred to as the 'stainless steel bible', the Australian Stainless Reference Manual is an industry guide and comprehensive resource to stainless steel.

An indispensable guide to stainless steel, the Reference Manual opens with a useful introduction to the material, contains a wealth of technical information, guidance on relevant national and international standards, and extensive glossary of stainless steel terminology and a full listing of ASSDA members, ASSDA Accredited Fabricators and their services. Technical sections of the manual include valuable information on:

  • Properties and performance
  • Grade selection

  • Conversion tables

A well respected industry publication, the Reference Manual has assisted specifiers, fabricators and end users of stainless steel in Australia for over a decade. Currently being published every 5 years, the Reference Manual is an essential guide for anyone connected with the building, manufacturing and design industries.

The 2012 Australian Stainless Reference Manual is the current edition, and the 2019 edition is currently in review and underway for publication in the second half of 2019.
