What is it?
Hot rolled steel is steel that has been rolled and processed at very high temperatures. This process results in products that are easier to work with. Since it cools after processing, there is less control over the final shape of the steel.
Hot rolled steel coils are used in applications where precise shapes are not required. This type of steel can be forced into a variety of different shapes. Hot rolled steel is used mostly in welding and construction to make products such as railroad tracks and I-beams. It can also be used to make automotive frames, agricultural equipment, and trailers.
