Choosing hot rolled steel is essential when flexibility is vital. Its uses are many, but here are some typical applications:
Worthington also makes high-strength, low-alloy hot rolled steel to enhance your end-product performance. Changing the microstructure of the steel further adapts this versatile material to your process and needs.
Our Materials Support team can help you choose the optimal steel for your project. Here are some basics: Compared to cold rolled steel, hot rolled steel is strong and easier to form, but comes with heavier thicknesses and wider gauge tolerances. It also offers lower mechanical property control. As a result, it may provide cost savings where appearance, dimensions, and weight requirements are not critical.
