Although there are numerous dealers scattered all across, enhancing your knowledge about the different uses of hot rolled coils helps before considering them for your project. For novices, HR sheets basically comprise of a steel variety produced in a mill. It doesn’t have a lustrous surface which is why they are mostly preferred in applications and projects where the finish of the structure is not as important.  This in no way implies that the structures manufactured using this metal will appear boring and dull. 

When compared to other steel products which usually have a silvery blue or purplish tint, hot-rolled sheets are quite easier to identify, owing to their dark grey appearance.  This gives an illusion that the strip is hot to the touch because of its color. It is the hot rolling process through which they are manufactured that lends these sheets its darkish appearance. 

The Three Primary Uses of Hot Rolled Sheet Coils

Owing to its unique finish, hot rolled sheet coils are used to craft different art sculptures. The steel sheets exude color variations that can help imbibe the desired character in the entire sculpture. Although they offer great aesthetics, they lack a definite finish which makes them prone to rusting. Next time you come across a structure in your office building or hotel lobby with a rusted finish, possibilities are it is made of hot-rolled sheet coils.

Automobile Industry

Another sector where hot-rolled sheets are widely used includes the automobile industry. They are used to manufacture frames of trucks and seat frames of different vehicles. Largest steel producers in India produce the metal through the pickle and oiling process that not only protects them from rusting but also allows the automobile manufacturers to paint the vehicle according to their requirement. The surface finish is further made even and smoother with the help of a mill scale cleaning process which is done to remove black oxides scale from the metal. 

Agriculture Equipment

The high strength and formability of hot rolled steel coils make them ideal for manufacturing different agricultural equipment. The steel can be bent according to one’s requirement, depending on its grade. The strength offered by these coils proves useful in manufacturing different farm machinery like tractors. 

Now that you are aware of the different uses of hot-rolled sheets, it’s time to start looking for a reliable dealer such as JSW to make the most of this durable metal.
