Common Questions We Asked

Yes, we supply our products to the states of California, Oregon, Washington and Nevada.

What is the difference between hot rolled steel and cold rolled steel?

Hot rolling is a metalworking process that occurs above the recrystallization temperature (typically over 1700° F) of the material. The products are usually fed directly into the rolling mills at the proper temperature. As the material is worked, the temperature must be monitored to make sure that it remains above the recrystallization temperature.

Cold rolling is a process that occurs with the metal below its recrystallization temperature (usually at room temperature). Commonly cold-rolled products include sheets, strips, bars, and rods; these products are usually smaller than their hot-rolled counterparts.

Hot rolling is a technique used to produce hot rolled plates or hot rolled sheets. Hot rolled metal is used to produce truck frames, water heaters, agricultural equipment, strappings, stampings, compressor shells, railcar components, metal buildings, railroad hopper cars, doors, shelving, and guard rails.

Is there a price difference between hot rolled steel versus cold rolled steel products?

Hot rolled products are less expensive than cold-rolled ones.

How is plate steel different from sheet steel?

A sheet or plate steel is steel in the form of thin, flat pieces that is produced using an industrial process. It is one of the fundamental forms of steel used in metalworking, and it can be cut and bent into a variety of shapes.

The thickness can vary considerably, with the foil or leaf forms being extremely thin and the plate form being thicker than 6 mm (0.25 inches).

Sheet metal is available in the form of flat pieces or coiled strips. The coils are formed by running a continuous sheet of metal through a roll slitter.

The thickness of sheet metal is commonly specified by a traditional, non-linear measure known as its gauge. The larger the gauge, the thinner is the metal. Commonly used steel sheet metal ranges in thickness from 30 gauge to 7 gauge.
