Hot Rolled Steel
Hot rolled steel is definitely something which many people have not heard of. However, it has a lot of usages in our every day life and most of you probably could not imagine what our life would be like without it. That is why the main aim of this article is to inform you about some interesting facts concerning the hot rolled steel, facts which you should definitely be aware of.
Perhaps, you do not even know what the color of the hot steel should be, do you? You may think that knowing something like that is not important but that is not true since being familiar with the fact means that you have found the best way for recognizing the real hot rolled steel from the imitation. Do you know why? Do you know what the reason is? Well, that is very simple: it is because the color of the hot steel cannot be changed in any way no matter what paint is being used. And let’s just get back to the main question about what the color should be: well, that is blue! Remember it and never forget it because if somebody is offering hot rolled steel which has any other color, they are certainly lying.
But there is not doubt that one of the greatest advantages which the hot rolled steel can offer the customers is the great variety of shapes in existence. Are you asking yourself why it is like that? Why is the cold steel not offered in so many variations and shapes? If you think about it carefully, you will come to the conclusion that the higher the temperature of a metal is the more easily shaped it is. Let’s just take a simple example: a not-very-thick (around 2 cm) bar of steel. At room temperature (around 25 centigrade) you are not likely to affect on its shape manually no matter how strong you are or how hard you are trying. It is just steel and the steel, as you know it, cannot be bent even if the bar is with thickness of only 2 cm. However, if the steel’s temperature increases up to 1000 centigrade, let’s say, you will definitely not have serious problems to bend it. Being unable to touch the steel because of the high temperature is another matter.
Well, that was pretty much everything you need to know about the hot rolled steel. Just do not forget: it is always blue and its great advantage is that can be offered in a great variety of shapes.
