With respect to the grade, 10B38, it's a plain carbon steel that has been b
oron treated. A very good database that I've used for years when I didn't h
ave in-house information available was http://www.matweb.com /. You could fi
nd the composition and typical properties for the grade from this site. Sin
ce this is a heat treated grade, the properties depend upon your specificat
ion. As far as steel sources, if you are looking for bar products, try Repu
blic Steel; http://www.republicsteel.com/. Depending upon the bar size and
order size, they would be able to produce the grade, but you'd need to inqu
ire your specific order requirements. Again for bars, outside of Republic S
teel, any of the major US bars manufactures should be capable of producing
this grade. Timken, Charter or Gerdau would be other possible sources. If y
ou're looking for sheet, strip or plate, I'd start with USS;http://www.usst
eel.com/. I've been away from that side of the business for too many years
to offer other recommendations.
