Hot Rolled High Carbon Steel


Hot-Rolled steel has been rolled at high temperature from a cast steel slab more than two inches thick into a steel coil as thin as 1/16 inches thick.

Because the steel is rolled hot, and the reduction from slab to coil is great, the coil surfaces are noticeably rough and slightly oxidized. 

Hot-rolled steel is used where precise shapes and tolerances are not required. Hot rolled steel is cheaper than cold rolled steel because it is not processed after it is hot-rolled except for pickling when required to remove surface scale.
