Con-Tech’s procurement outsourcing includes cold-rolled steel coils, as well as cold rolled sheet steel, cut to length sheets, strip, and first operation blanks. We offer all structural, high strength low alloy and common gradesof cold rolled steel in oiled or with DOS.
Our cold rolled sheet steel is provided by various world-class steel producers, many of whom are ISO certified both domestic and foreign. These mills have been chosen as suppliers based on their ability to guarantee the highest quality and lowest cost available anywhere.
Con-Tech cold rolled sheet steel is made by the cold rolling process, performed below the metal’s softening temperature, whereby previously hot rolled and picked metal is passed through cold rolls to become cold rolled steel. Cold rolled steel is passed through a number of rollers after the metal has cooled from initial production. The steel is reduced in thickness incrementally as it passes through the rollers.
Cold rolled steel, in turn, is significantly stronger than hot rolled steel with an improved surface finish, allows for tighter tolerances and different thickness reducing options.
Cold Rolled Steel vs Hot Rolled Steel
Cold rolled steel is thinner, smoother and stronger than hot-rolled products. Cold rolled steel is distinctive due to its aesthetic appearance, having well-defined corners, more uniformity, and a smooth surface. Since the process is performed at room temperature, the steel will not shrink as it cools, as it does in the hot-rolled process.
Con-Tech’s procurement services includes cold rolled sheet steel which permits close tolerances and can be made into very precise shapes. Given its many advantages, there are innumerable uses of cold rolled steel including industrial packaging, furniture, parts, and other containers to name a few.
Con-Tech is always searching the marketplace for new suppliers as global steelmaking capacity has increased in recent years. Asia and the Middle East are leading the way in new steelmaking operations but, Bolivia, Namibia and Mozambique are also expected to see the start-up of their first steel plants in the 2021-23 period.
