Cold Rolled

Our Cold Rolled products are produced to ASTM-A-1008 (Commercial Steel-Type B). The cold reduction process produces a product with tighter thickness tolerances and better surface quality as compared to Hot Rolled Pickled and Oiled. The coils are lightly oiled to inhibit the formation of rust. This steel is soft enough that it can be bent upon itself in either direction without cracking on the outside of the bend. The cold reduction process also allows the mills to produce steel to lighter gauges as compared to Hot Rolled products.

The surface of our Cold Rolled products is specified as a Matte Finish which is a uniform dull finish without luster.
