What are the Differences Between Hot Rolled & Cold Rolled Rectangle Steel Tube?

Cold rolling is primarily meant to increase metal's hardness and yield strength by producing certain defects in the crystal structure. The cold rolling process is also used to decrease the thickness of plate and sheet metal in the manufacturing stage.
Conversely, hot rolling is performed at temperatures above 1,700°F. This process allows the steel to be easily shaped and formed into much larger sizes. Since it is processed without delays in manufacturing, hot rolled alloy rectangular tube is less expensive than cold rolled options.
