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.
