Our Steel is Real: New Options in Our Online Quoting System

Image

Steel remains one of our most popular materials, so we've decided to add a few new options to our lineup of options in our online quoting system. The following steel materials are now available:

  • Cold Finished Steel 1018
  • Cold Rolled Steel A366/1008
  • Hot Rolled Steel A36
  • Hot Rolled Steel 1045
  • Hot Rolled Steel A569/ASTM A1011

These are available in stock materials ranging from as thin as 0.024 inch all the way up to 1 inch thick.

About Steel

We have three main varieties of steel: hot rolled, cold rolled, and cold finished. Cold rolled and cold finished steel will generally have the smoothest surface finish, and will look the best on applications that need to look good. Hot rolled steel is usually less expensive, but can have an irregular oxide coating (mill scale) on the outside.

For comparison purposes, here is a chart of the relative strengths of the various kinds of steel.

TypeUltimate Tensile Strength, psi. Higher is Better
Cold Finished Steel 1018 63,800
Cold Rolled Steel A366/1008 38,000 - 51,900
Hot Rolled Steel A36 58,000 - 79,800
Hot Rolled Steel 1045 95,000
Hot Rolled Steel A569/ASTM A1011 30,000 - 50,000

As always, if you don't see your material on our list, just ask, and we'll try to accommodate your needs.
