Carbon steel is common in products whose major properties depend on its carbon content and in which other alloying elements are negligible. Coils are provided with a mill edge and are produced by rolling slabs of steel at a high temperature that’s above the steel’s recrystallisation point. Often referred to as “Hot Roll Black;” the black bands have a protective scale jacket that forms after rolling and protects the steel during short-term storage.
Hot roll steel is further produced into a variety of items for industries such as:
- Pipe and tube
Common specifications include:
- ASTM A1011/A1018
