obtaining 60 Cr4 steel in norway

I am trying to get hold of 60 Cr4 steel in norway, but so far none of the supplyers i contacted can deliver it. Maybe it is known under a different "name" ?
And btw. what does the 60 number in front of Cr4 mean?
composition of 60 Cr4 steel
C: 0.56-0.64 Mn: 0.75-1.00 P mx: 0.035 S mx: 0.040 Si: 0.15-0.35 Cr: 0.70-0.90

You should make yorself familiar with european standards for steel. A textbook should be sufficient.

The steel you are referring to is to AISI 5160. In the UK it is to BS 970-2 1988 grade 525A58 or 525A60. I can try and find a supply from the UK if you like.
