Cold rolled steel sheet is, essentially, hot rolled steel that has been further processed to increase its strength and strength-to-weight ratio. Generally, cold rolled steel sheet can hold tighter tolerances than hot rolled when machined or otherwise fabricated, providing a better overall surface finish. This premium steel product is manufactured from steel alloy materials, providing a smooth, clean surface ideal for various industries, including structural, automotive, furniture, and more.

Cold Rolled Steel Sheet and Plate Advantages

Cold rolled steel plate and sheet products are used for applications that require harder and stronger steel than hot rolled steel while providing resistance against tension breaking and deformation due to work hardening. 1008 rolled sheet offers an aesthetically pleasing look with a broader range of surface finishes. Additional benefits associated with the use of 1008 cold rolled sheet products include:
  • Improved hardness
  • Increased dimensional accuracy
  • Greater yield strength
  • Improved surface finish
  • Increased tensile strength


What is the Cold Rolled Steel Sheet and Plate Manufacturing Process?

Steel plate and sheet within the cold rolling manufacturing process is either annealed or passed through rollers below their recrystallization temperature, depending on the end goals of the manufacturer. The metal is then compressed and squeezed, increasing its hardness and yield strength.

Cold Rolled Steel Sheet and Plate Applications

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 are easy to drill, form and weld and is used in applications where tolerances, surface conditions, concentricity, and straightness are factors. Cold rolled steel sheet and plate are used in numerous types of industrial applications, including:
  • Automotive parts
