Hot Rolled Steel

A coil of steel rolled on a hot-strip mill (hot-rolled steel) at high temperatures above the metal’s recrystallization temperature. Hot rolled steel is covered with mill scale and the hot roll microstructure is not ideal for forming as it is typically hard and brittle. Steel can be sold in this form, or it can be sold after further processing. Hot rolled steel is also called hot band.
