Hot rolled steel destined for the sheet market can be either shipped as a hot band or cleaned in an acid bath and sold as pickled band. Alloy products are also available. Hot-rolled products are used in many markets including automotive, construction, heavy equipment, and tubular products (including line pipe and OCTG).
Modern state-of-the-art process control computers set up and monitor all the equipment necessary to roll and coil the steel to the customer's exact specifications.
We offer a wide range of precisely controlled chemical compositions with low residuals. Various product attributes, additional offerings and capabilities are shown below.
Black bands have a protective scale jacket that forms after rolling and protects the steel during short term storage.
- Pickled and oiled
Pickling the steel in an acid bath removes the scale jacket and leaves a clean surface for further processing. The surface is treated with oil to prevent corrosion during shipping and storage.
- Enhanced surface
Inquire about enhanced surfaces available for laser cutting.
Size capability may vary by specification and facility.
