Steel comes in a variety of grades, shapes, finishes, and specifications, and at Pennsylvania Steel Company, we offer a wide selection. One of our most popular products is hot rolled steel. Hot rolled steel is what it exactly sounds like, steel that has been rolled at a very high temperature (over 1,700°F). The purpose of rolling steel at such high temperatures is to recrystallize it, making it easier to form into easy-to-work-with products. PA Steel offers a wide array of hot rolled steel sections, including angles, channels, beams, and flat bars.
If you’re searching for hot-rolled steel products in the northeast, PA Steel has many steel distributors for your convenience. We have several locations in Pennsylvania and locations in Bethpage, NY, Naugatuck, CT, Stanley, NC, Ashland, VA, and Cleveland, OH.
Producing steel this way is cost-effective because it’s easy to shape. Additionally, the cooling process causes little to no internal stress in the metal. Overall, hot-rolled steel is cheaper and easier to make than cold-rolled steel. Due to the lack of control over the finished result, hot rolled steel is most suitable for applications where precise tolerances and shapes aren’t critical. Some of the most common applications of hot rolled steel include:
Grades MQ, A-36
Grades A-36, B16, 1045, 1018, 1117, 1141/44, 4130, 4140, 4150, 4340, 8620, C.Q.
Grades A-36 and Bar
Grades A-36 in Mise and Structural
Grades A-36 in Wide Flange and Standard
