Cold Rolled Steel Coil Supplier
Cold-rolled steel is low-carbon hot-rolled steel that has been rolled at room temperature, below its recrystallization temperature. The steel is then cleaned of oxide scale and finished in a specific series of rolling to just over the desired thickness, heating to controlled temperatures, and final rolling to the desired thickness. This produces steel with a close thickness tolerance (+/-.0015” or better) and a wide range of controlled surface finishes. The process of cold rolling increasing the steel’s strength and hardness, while decreasing its ductility. Not only can you achieve improved mechanical properties, cold rolling provides more control over the shape and final dimensions of the product.
Use cold-rolled steel where thickness tolerances and surface conditions have a narrow window for success in your application. As a cold rolled steel coil supplier, we will be glad to help you select the exact grade for your specific needs.

Differences Between Hot and Cold Rolled Steel
The main difference between hot and cold rolled steel is in how they are processed. Hot rolled steel is steel that has been rolled at high temperatures, while cold rolled steel is essentially hot rolled steel that is further processed in cold reduction materials. Here, the material is cooled followed by annealing and/or tempers rolling. Steels of different grades and specifications can be either hot or cold rolled. Want to learn more?
