Hot Rolled Steel
Cascadia Metals offers a wide variety of Hot Rolled Steel products. Hot Rolled Steel is manufactured using a mill process which involves rolling the steel at a high temperature (above the steel’s recrystallization temperature). While the steel is above the recrystallization temperature, it can be shaped and formed easily. With Hot Rolled Steel, the starting material is usually large pieces of metal such as slabs, blooms and billets.
Lower Cost – typically cheaper than cold rolled steel
Malleability – looser tolerances allow hot rolled to be forced into a variety of shapes
Improved Mechanical Properties – rolling process eliminates certain steel defects making the steel denser
Our Hot Rolled Steel meets ASTM A568 requirements.
So you can rest assured our product will meet all standard specifications per ASTM.
Pickled & Oiled
Hot Rolled Steel is also available with a Pickled & Oiled finish. By being pickled in acid and oiled, the mill scale on the Hot Rolled Steel can be removed which protects it from rusting. Pickling and oiling cost is somewhere in between regular hot rolling and cold rolling.
Hot Rolled Steel coil is produced as a feedstock for cold rolled steel coil and metallic-coated coils such as galvanized or galvannealed steel. Hot Rolled Steel is also used in a variety of industrial applications including transportation (bridges, support beams, guardrails), shipbuilding, gas containers, pressure vessels and energy pipelines. In addition, Hot Rolled Steel is incorporated in many construction products including everything from fireplaces to furniture to cabinets…in both residential and commercial applications. This product has also caught the eye of architects for applications such as wall panels, decorative railings and more.
