Hot Rolled Steel Sheet
In the hot rolled process, steel products are processed at high temperatures to heat the steel above its recrystallization point (over 1,700˚F). In this state it becomes more malleable, allowing it to be easily formed into a variety of shapes. Hot rolled steel sheets are an economical option that offers reliable performance and versatility.
Hot Rolled Steel Characteristics
Hot rolled steel sheets typically require less processing and is cheaper than cold rolled steel. HR steel sheets can be described as having:
- Slight distortions
- Increased malleability
- A scaled surface (slightly oxidized)
- Slightly round edges (less precise finishing)
Hot Rolled Steel Applications
As a basic carbon steel, hot rolled steel is typically used for applications in which dimensional tolerances and surface finish quality are not major factors, such as:

ASTM A1011 Hot Rolled Steel
ASTM A1011 is a high strength commercial quality alloy material with improved formability. "A" stands for the ferrous metal followed by the four-digit classification number according to the SAE grading system. ASTM1011 is great for welding and typically requires less processing than cold rolled steel, unless pickling is required.
ASTM A36 Hot Rolled Steel
A36 is a low carbon steel most widely used for hot-rolled steel products. It is commonly used in structural applications and exhibits good strength and formability as well as being one of the lease expensive carbon steels.
