Hot-rolled

All flat-rolled coil steel is initially hot-rolled by passing a slab through a multi-stand hot rolling mill to produce a wide variety of thicknesses up to one inch thick. 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 specifications. 

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 non-critical surface applications such as:

  • Automotive frames and wheels
  • Construction products
  • Pipe
  • Off-highway equipment
  • Guardrails
