Hot Rolled Steel Sheet

Hot Rolled Pickled & Oiled Steel

Hot Rolled Sheet MetalHot rolled sheet metal is generally used in parts where rust-proofing is not critical. There are processes that allow hot rolled sheet metal to prevent rust as well. This process is called HRP&O - Hot rolled pickled and oiled. During the pickling process, an acidic solution is used to remove contaminants and other unwanted elements such as stains and rust. Once this pickling process is complete the acid is rinsed off and dried. Once finished drying we then apply a thin film of oil to the steel to prevent it from rusting. 

Hot Rolled Oiled Steel

Pickling and oiling improve hot-rolled durability and workability at a low cost. It provides a cleaner surface hot rolled product suitable for painting with a limited barrier to rust formation. Hot rolled "pickled" refers to the scale removal while hot rolled oiled refers to its ability to guard against rust.
