Cold Rolled Steel Plate & Sheet

Cold Rolled Steel Sheets and Plate are cold rolled to extremely accurate thicknesses tolerances, which provides a fine, smooth surface creating an excellent base for painting. In addition, cold rolled steel sheet and plate is easy to drill, form and weld.

Cold Rolled Steel Sheet Metal Applications

Cold rolled steel sheet and plate is used in numerous types of industrial applications, including:
  • Automotive panels
  • Tool boxes
  • Drip pans
  • Hoppers
  • Fuel tanks
  • And more

Hot Rolled vs Cold Rolled Steel Sheet & Plate

Cold rolled steel sheet is, essentially, hot rolled steel that has been further processed to increase its strength and strength-to-weight ratio. In general, cold rolled steel sheet can hold tighter tolerances than hot rolled when machined or otherwise fabricated, and provides a better overall surface finish.

In cold rolling, steel sheet is cooled at room temperature (after hot rolling), and is then annealed and/or tempers rolled. Although “cold rolled steel” is a specific type of steel, the term is often used to mean all types of carbon steel materials.
