HOT ROLLED COIL PLATE BEST SUITED FOR CONSTRUCTION AND WELDING
Hot rolled steel coil from Steelco Trading And Contracting is steel that has been roll-pressed at very high temperatures—specifically over 1,700˚F, which is above the re-crystallization temperature. This makes the steel easier to create and resulting in products that are easier to work with.
To create hot rolled steel, manufacturers initiate the process with a large rectangular length of metal, called a billet. This billet is heated and then flattened into a large roll. From there, it its state is maintained at a high temperature and then run through a series of rollers to achieve its initial shape. The white-hot strands of steel are run through the rollers at high speeds. To attain sheet metal, rolled steel is spun into coils and left to cool. For other forms, such as plates or bars, the materials are sectioned and packaged.
