Cold Rolled Steel
This product is made by cold-reducing descaled hot rolled coils to the desired thickness. Usually, the coils undergo further processing such as annealing and temper rolling to impart the desired formability, surface texture and flatness.
How It Works
Cold reduction creates a thinner product, one with a thickness that cannot generally be obtained in hot rolled steel. In addition to being made thinner, cold reducing makes the steel harder and less ductile. The cold-reduced steel is then annealed (heated to high temperatures) to make it soft and formable.
