Hot Rolled
Commonly known as Mild Steel, Hot rolling is a Manufacturing process which involves rolling the steel at a high temperature (typically at a temperature over 1700° F), which is above the steel’s recrystallization temperature.
When steel is above the recrystallization temperature, it can be shaped and formed easily. Hot rolled steel is typically cheaper than cold rolled steel due to the fact that it is often manufactured without any delays in the process, and therefore the reheating of the steel is not required (as it is with cold rolled). When the steel cools off it will shrink slightly thus giving less control on the size and shape of the finished product when compared to cold rolled.
Hot Rolled products usually have a scaly finish, rough finish in its “Mill” finish.
To improve this finish the Hot Rolled sheets then pass through an acid bath to remove this scale, also known as “pickling” after this, a layer of oil is applied to the sheet to give protection to the surface from environmental elements.

Uses:
Ideal for Metal furniture, domestic appliances, building and construction applications. It will weld very well with normal welding techniques. It is also the perfect choice for many structural applications.
Automotive parts, boxes, drawn parts and enclosures. It will weld and cut very well and will also paint very well when cleaned.
Does rust easily if left untreated.

Cold Rolled
Cold rolled steel is essentially hot rolled steel that has had a further manufacturing stage. The steel is processed further in cold reduction mills, where the material is cooled (at room temperature) followed by annealing and/or temper rolling.
All cold products provide a superior surface finish, and are superior in tolerance, concentricity, and straightness when compared to hot rolled.
Cold Rolled steels are usually supplied in thicknesses between 0.6mm – 3.0mm
