Another type of steel sheet, manufactured by deforming steel into sheets. So, how is it done? In this process, a metal alloy, in this case, steel, is placed between two rollers to produce a fibrous sheet.
Despite being a non-recognized industrial-grade metal sheet, its improved strength and finishing make it widely used for projects requiring precision. Let us now take a look at some of its uses:
• Ideally used in the manufacture of metal furniture and home appliances.
• Construction of garages, industrial buildings, steel sheds.
• Commonly used in making school lockers and metal filing cabinets.
Other than the difference in temperature, the process involved in the manufacture of hot rolled steel sheet is quite similar to its cold-rolled counterpart. That being said, in this case, steel is pressed down into a flat sheet between two rolls at a temperature of more than 1400 degrees Fahrenheit.
The high temperature helps in increasing the thickness of the sheets. For this reason, hot rolled steel sheets have a thickness ranging between 1/6 to 5/6 inches, making it useful in tackling delicate functions.
Furthermore, unlike cold-rolled steel sheets, which offer a great finishing, hot rolled sheets come with a lackluster finishing. Yes, the term is used to describe dull and boring, but truth be told, these sheets serve as one of the most interesting types, in terms of appearance.
• Its unique finishing makes it widely used in the creation of art sculptures.
• Formability and strength of the sheet help in the manufacture of agricultural equipment.
• Used in truck and automobile frames.
