Hot rolled steel is generally used in parts where rust proofing is not critical. There are processes that allow hot rolled sheets to prevent rust as well. This process is called HRP&O - Hot rolled pickled and oiled. Pickling and oiling improves hot-rolled durability and workablility at a low cost. It provides a cleaner surface hot rolled product suitable for painting with a limited barrier to rust formation. It is an all purpose steel product used for roll-formed shapes, pipe, tubing, industrial storage racks, automotive and other stampings, air compressor housings, filter housings, agricultural equipment, package strapping, and much more.
