Carbon Steel

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:

  • Automotive
  • Energy
  • Construction
  • Pipe and tube industries

Common specifications include:

  • ASTM A1011/A1018
  • A606
