Cold Rolled Steel

Cold-rolled steel undergoes a process that enhances strength and surface finish, ideal for applications requiring precision and durability.

Cold rolled steel (CRS) is essentially hot rolled steel that has gone through an additional rolling process at room temperature.

This additional processing produces a steel with closer tolerances and a broader range of finishes. The result is an increase in strength by as much as 20% compared to hot rolled steel. SPCC is commonly used for automotive parts and some construction applications. SPCC can be used for galvanized products, appliances, containers, and other products.

  • Harder and stronger than hot rolled steel
  • Good for tight tolerances, creating shapes that are square with true edges and corners
  • Allows for precise dimensions
  • High quality smooth surface and finish
  • Easier to process than hot rolled steel with less spring back during bending
  • Stable mechanical performance across multiple batches
  • High formability
  • More expensive than steel
  • Steel is a better option where strength is a primary concern and weight isn’t an issue
  • Some alloys are less corrosion resistant than a stainless steel option
  • Can affect taste of food so it’s less common for food or cooking applications
  • Window frames
  • Aircraft and automotive parts
  • Kitchenware
  • Food packaging
  • Lighting
  • Electrical products
  • Machinery and equipment
