NEW YORK — AK Steel Corp., Allegheny Technologies Inc. (ATI) and the United Steelworkers union have filed a trade petition against imports of grain-oriented electrical steel from Japan, South Korea, China and four other countries, alleging that the low-priced material has suppressed margins and deteriorated domestic prices.

The petition concerns the alleged dumping of imports from Japan, South Korea, China, the Czech Republic, Germany, Poland and Russia, and subsidies on imports from China, the parties said in a petition filed with both the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) and the U.S. Commerce Department Sept. 18.

Alleged dumping margins are 168.47 percent for Chinese producers, 57.55 to 217.23 percent for Czech producers, 49.51 to 188.59 percent for German producers, 38.26 to 171.25 percent for Japanese producers, 47.81 to 94.85 percent for Polish producers, 18.54 to 81.78 percent for Russian producers and 40.45 to 210.13 percent for South Korean producers.....
