Rolled Bar Distributor
Cromdane Steel, Inc. is a rolled bar distributor with an unmatched inventory of rolled steel bar on hand and ready for delivery. We provide hot and cold rolled steel bar to customers in a variety of industries including oil and gas, mining, and power generation.
Our rolled bar is sourced from the highest quality mills and meets stringent testing and inspection before delivery to our customers. Rolled bar is one of the most widely used manufacturing and construction materials in the world because of its strength, versatility and affordability.
Hot Rolled Steel Bar
Hot rolling is completed in a mill and involves rolling the steel at a high temperature – typically over 1700°F – which is above the steel’s recrystallization temperature. At this temperature, steel can be easily shaped, formed and even made in much larger sizes. Without the added steps of cold rolling, hot rolled steel will shrink slightly when cooled giving the manufacturer less control of the final size and shape of the finished product. However, it is a more economical choice than cold rolled steel.
Hot rolled steel bars are used in the welding and construction industries to make products like railroad tracks and I-beams. It is ideal for use in applications where precise shapes and tolerances are not required.
Cold Rolled Steel Bar
Additional cooling and reheating steps give cold rolled steel bar a very tight tolerance diameter. It is essentially hot rolled steel that has had further processing and therefore comes at a slightly higher price tag. After heating, cold-rolled steel is processed further in cold reduction mills where the material is cooled to room temperature followed by annealing and/or tempers rolling.
Cold rolled bar is recommended for projects where tolerances, surface conditions, and straightness are major factors. Examples include oil and water well gears and shafting.
