Metal sheets are utilized across various industries for a wide range of projects. We carry sheet in the following metal types:
Sheeting is a common metal shape that holds a variety of uses. Available in several metal types, applications for a sheet range from automotive panels to cookware and outdoor awnings. Although its properties range depending on which metal type is chosen, sheets are a useful shape that often have properties including thermal conductivity, strength, and corrosion resistance.
Strength, hardness, toughness, wear resistance and corrosion resistance. Many of the alloy steels are easy to machine, stamp and fabricate and can be manufactured to precise tolerances.Learn More
Aluminum is one of the most versatile materials available for engineering and construction purposes. Although it is light-weight, aluminum still boasts great strength and corrosion resistance. Aluminum products, such as tube or sheet, can be easily formed and machined, making it a simple metal type to work with. It’s commonly used in creating aircrafts, tanks, housing structures, and more. Beneficial aluminum properties include low mass, thermal and electrical conductivity, and high reflectivity.Learn More
Cold finished steel is created by further treating hot rolled steel. Through this second processing step, the cold finished steel develops a better strength-to-weight ratio, which can enable it to hold tighter tolerances during fabricating and machining. Cold finished steel also has a smoother and more fragile finish when compared to hot rolled, meaning that transportation and storage of the metal type must happen with extra care. Typically, cold finished metal is used in parts that require crimping, bending, or swaging. These parts may be utilized by the appliance, building, automotive, and machinery industries.Learn More
Hot rolled steel is created by rolling steel at a high temperature that lends it to being easily shaped and formed. The mills that produce hot rolled are very efficient, consistently flattening the product into large rolls, which leads to lower costs for O’Neal Steel customers. Hot rolled steel is typically used in situations where precise shapes or tolerances are not required. It’s commonly utilized by the farming, construction, automotive, and mining industries.Learn More
Stainless steel is a modern alloy that was developed in the early 1900’s. Its high strength, hardness, and workability makes stainless steel a useful metal type for a wide variety of uses.
O’Neal Steel offers three different grades of stainless steel: austenitic, ferritic, and martensitic. Each grade of stainless offers varying special properties including high corrosion resistance, special finishes, and extreme toughness. Stainless steel is a low-cost material, making it a great metal type for a plethora of projects, and it is easily recycled.Learn More
