Rolls

Hot rolled from steel billet, wire rod is delivered as coil, most commonly at 5.5mm dia, but in sizes up to 60mm dia. Close control of final cooling is a critical part of production. The most important characteristic for determining a rod's end use is its drawability; the extent to which the rod's diameter can be reduced during the drawing process. Low carbon rod is used for undemanding applications like fencing wire and concrete reinforcing mesh, while medium and high carbon rod goes into higher performance uses like steelcord for car tyre reinforcement. Some rod (cold heading carbon and alloy grades) is used to make fasteners (bolts, screws, nails, rivets), and alloy rod is commonly machined into products like engineering bearings. Some rod provides filler metal in welding operations.

Structural Sections

Heavy or structural sections are steel products such as beams or columns which are usually formed with a specific cross section shape e.g. H, I or U. Used to build large structures such as multi-storey buildings and bridges.

Cold-rolled non-grain oriented silicon steel: Semi Processed

Semi processed CRNGO is used to manufacture commercial power frequency devices. It provides the customers the option of using their proprietary heat treatment processes to obtain desired core-loss and permeability characteristics. This option can result in cost savings for the client

Cold-Rolled Non-Grain Oriented silicon steel (CRNGO): Fully Processed

Non-oriented electrical steels are silicon steels in which magnetic properties are practically the same in any direction of magnetism in the plane of the material. Typical applications are for motors, generators, transducers, and magnetic circuits of industrial machinery.

Cold-Rolled Grain Oriented silicon steel (CRGO)

Grain oriented electrical steels are iron-silicon alloys that provide low core loss and high permeability needed for more efficient and economical electrical transformers. Grain oriented grades of electrical steel are typically used for transformer cores and large generators.

Slit Coils

Coated Steel Coil

Colour coated, or pre-painted, steel, is steel coil to which a paint, powder or film coating has been applied in a continuous process prior to it being cut and shaped. It provides a durable uniform surface finish, and can be an alternative to conventional post-manufacture painting of steel parts. The coil is coated on one or both sides. Rolls apply first a primer and then a topcoat to the moving steel strip. The substrate is usually cold reduced galvanised coil, but galvanised HRC and even uncoated coil is used. Building applications account for around two thirds of consumption, with cladding on steel frame buildings a well known use. It is also widely used for domestic appliance casings and for some furniture.

Coated Sheet

Coating steel sheet improves durability and lengthens product life. It is manufactured to meet specific customer requirements for corrosion resistance, strength and formability. Thickness, width, surface quality and surface finish vary greatly. The most typical applications are for metal roofing and automotive manufacturing.

Tin Plate

Tinplate is cold reduced steel sheet coated with a thin layer of tin. Tin mill products are produced in a variety of types including electrolytic tinplate, electrolytic chromium coated steel and black plate, an uncoated product. It has good corrosion resistance and food compatibility – although many products require a thin coating of lacquer to maximise the shelf life of the contents. Around 90% of tinplate is used in packaging, with food and drinks cans the biggest market, but it is also widely used for other consumer and general packaging, such as aerosols, paints and oils.

Cold Rolled Sheet

Flat rolled products for which the required final thickness has been obtained by rolling at room temperature. To meet the various end use requirements, cold-rolled sheet products are metallurgically designed to provide specific attributes such as high formability, deep drawability, high strength, high dent resistance, good magnetic properties, enamelability and paintability.
Cold rolled steel sheet is used in a wide variety of end applications such as appliances refrigerators, washers, dryers and other small appliances, automobiles - exposed as well as unexposed parts - electric motors, and bathtubs.
