This process provides formability, improved surface texture and flatness. Properties of A Steel Sheet A is a standard specification for cold rolled, carbon steel. The process of cold rolling the sheet creates a smooth surface which is typically oiled to prevent surface rust from forming. Compared to hot rolled steel, A is known for having excellent weldability and formability. The cold rolling process also creates good drawing and spinning characteristics and a steel sheet that works well in most common steel processing options.

Typical Uses of A Carbon Sheet Because steel sheet is a durable, versatile material, it is used in a wide range of structures and applications including construction, framing, ductwork, machinery framing, and many other industrial applications. As a material A is typically used in applications where it will not be exposed to elements due to potential for aging.

The surface is usually oiled to help reduce aging. Cold rolled sheet is often selected for applications like truck beds, truck cab backs, and areas not exposed to the elements that require strength. A is typically bought to meet chemistry requirements rather than physical requirements. For that reason, physical properties are generally not provided unless requested prior to production.

Any material can be sent to a third party after production to be tested for physical properties. It can also reduce the grain size of the metal, improve its surface finish, and hold tighter tolerances. By keeping the material below the recrystallization temperature, the metal becomes less malleable, making cold rolling a labor-intensive process.

It can also produce thinner sheets than hot rolling. With a huge inventory of cut-to-size metals, we provide competitive pricing and fast, convenient shipping.
