Hot Rolled/Hot Rolled Pickled and Oiled

What is Hot Rolled Steel?

Hot rolled steel is produced through a milling process where the steel is rolled at high temperatures. Once heated at these temperatures, the steel can be shaped and formed easily. Hot rolled steel is typically cheaper to produce than cold rolled steel due to the fact that it is often manufactured without any delays in the process, and therefore the reheating of steel is not required. Hot rolled steel is used in applications where precise shapes and tolerances are not required.

Pickling is a metal surface treatment used to remove impurities, such as stains, inorganic contaminants, rust or scale from ferrous metals, copper, precious metals and aluminum alloys. A solution called pickle liquor, which contains strong acids, is used to remove the surface impurities. During the pickling process the material is often oiled to add a protective barrier once the surface scale has been eliminated.
