Coils and sheets
A steel coil is a sheet metal that is packed in the form of a coil after rolling. Coils are classified based on the manner in which they are produced. Forming the sheets into coil make them easy to be processed and transported.
Manufacturing of coils and sheets
The raw material for producing a hot-roll is known as slab, the slab is heated by a roughing mill and finishing mill. After the production process, the sheets are cooled by laminar flow to a particular temperature and then rolled into a coil using a roller.
The most common method of producing galvanized steel is by the hot-dip method. In this process, the carbon steel is put into a bath containing molten zinc at around 680 degree Fahrenheit. When the material is removed from the bath, the zinc forms a bond with the steel. Galvanized Iron steel can also be produced by the electro-galvanizing process.
Types of coils:
HR coils & Sheets
HR coils are Hot Rolled coils. They are made by rolling steel continuously at temperatures above 1000 degree Fahrenheit.
Hot Rolled coils are most commonly used for making pipes, although they can be used industrially for constructing tanks, frames of bicycles, body parts of vehicles and other engineering equipments.
|Grade||S235JR, S275JR, S355JO, S355J2,Grade 50, Q235B, Q345B|
GI coils & Sheets
GI coils are described as carbon steel coated with zinc. They can also be called Galvanized Iron coils because the process of adding zinc is called galvanizing. Galvanizing is one of the best and cheapest ways of ensure that steel is corrosion resistant. Zinc becomes oxidized so that the steel underneath can remain protected.
GI coils are used in the fabrication of bodies of truck, automobile wheels, water heaters door, roofing and furniture.
|Hardness||Soft(normal),hard, full hard(G300-G550)|
