Hot rolled steel is easier to produce. It is simpler to shape and form. It’s production is a basic mill process wherein the steel is rolled at high temperature. It begins as a piece of still billet which is then heat treated up to 1700 degrees Fahrenheit (926° Celsius) in a blast furnace. The piece of steel is then rolled through the mill into the desired shape. The entire heat treatment process is carried out at very high temperatures.
Hot rolled steel is produced and recommended for applications where precision is not essential and tolerances are flexible.
The main advantages of hot rolled us that it is easier to produce and as a consequence it is cheaper in cost than cold rolled steel plate.
The disadvantages of steel produced using the hot rolled method is that dimensional imperfections can occur. These are caused by the heating (expanding) and the subsequent cooling down (shrink, warpage). Hot rolled steel can have a rougher surface texture, which can be easily buffed out.
We also are very aware that most of our customers don’t have the space or equipment to handle a full 5 metre thin metal strips. Therefore we made this available in shorter lengths.
