Hot-rolled and cold-rolled steel coil information
- Hot rolling is a process at the steel mill which involves rolling steel above its recrystallization temperature, typically over 1700° Fahrenheit.
- Steel that is heated above the recrystallization temperature can be shaped and formed more easily, which allows the steel to be made in much larger sizes.
Cold rolled steel is more expensive than hot rolled steel in most circumstances. This is because hot rolled steel is manufactured without any delays in the process which require reheating the steel.
When the steel cools off it will shrink slightly thus giving less control on the size and shape of the finished product when compared to cold rolled.
- Cold rolled steel is processed further in cold reduction mills, where the material is cooled (at room temperature) followed by annealing and/or tempers rolling.
- The cold reduction process will produce steel with closer dimensional tolerances and a wider range of surface finishes.
- The term Cold Rolled is mistakenly used on all products, when actually the product name refers to the rolling of flat rolled sheet and coil products.
Cargill Steel offers a consistency of hot-rolled and cold-rolled steel coil inventory and capabilities that will provide you with the right product for your needs. Our integrated supply chain and logistics combined with our global steel sourcing capabilities ensure that you will receive a competitive price to meet your quality and delivery needs.
