Cold-Rolled (CR) steel is produced in a variety of surface finishes, strength levels, and chemistries. It is produced from a Hot-Rolled sheet with additional processing steps such as pickling, cold reduction, annealing, and temper rolling.
Cold-Rolled steel is a product that has been cold reduced (as opposed to hot-rolled) to impart specific mechanical properties, surface finish, gauge tolerance, and strip shape. The benefits of Cold-Rolled steel are excellent performance in applications that require deep drawing, intricate bending, and forming.
High-strength Cold-Rolled sheet steels are used for weight reduction while increasing strength and durability that can result in cost reductions to customers.
This steel is used in appliances, automotive, lighting fixtures, shelving & cabinets, containers, and tubular products
