Cold Rolled Steel Production
Cold rolled steel essentially begins the same way as hot rolled steel. After exposure to extreme temperatures, cold rolled steel then undergoes further processing. The rolled steel cools in a cold reduction mill and finishes with annealing or tempers rolling instead of cooling at room temperature. The steel produced has closer dimensional tolerances and a wider range of surface finishes.

The Advantages of Industrial Cold Rolled Steel
Cold rolled steel provides increased strength and an aesthetically pleasing exterior finish. It offers tighter tolerances, providing a thinner metal without sacrificing any durability. Due to the extensive processing, cold rolled steel can create a greater variety of rolled steel thicknesses than hot rolled steel. The cooling process assures a consistent final shape with low variation.
Compared to hot rolled steel, it is more expensive and does have a lower malleability. However, the advantages outweigh the disadvantages because of cold rolled steel's improved strength and other traits.
