Product Details, Specifications, and Technical Information

See Hot Roll Steel Tolerances

Hot Rolled Steel Flat Bars A36 (0.5" X 2") are made of low carbon steel that is commonly found in most industries, offer good weldability, machinability, and can be heat treated to harden its surface. Unlike cold rolled steel, Hot Roll Flat Bars A36 has a rougher surface and with galvanization, it can resist corrosion well.
