Hot rolled steel products are divided into two groups: hot rolled coils produced through hot rolling and hot rolled steel plates, which are made by cutting material from hot rolled coils. Slabs produced from a continuous casting system are rolled, cooled and coiled into the sizes required by the customers.
Steel plates are hot rolled products that have a relatively high thickness. Products having a thickness of over 4.5 mm are classified as steel plates, and those having a thickness of over 100 mm are called thick steel plates. Slabs of steel plates made through continuous casting are tailored to the dimensions specified by the customer through rolling and cooling before being cut into their final sizes.
Wire rods are available in the form of coils. The cross-section of the rod ranges from 5.5 to 42 mm.
Billets produced from a continuous casting system are rolled, cooled and coiled into the sizes required by the customers.
Galvanized steel products are made by cleansing and heat-treating rolled coils before dipping them into a bath of molten zinc. Through this process, the coils are plated with zinc only (GI), zinc and iron (GA) or zinc, aluminum and magnesium (PosMAC).
Electrical galvanized steel is made by plating steel with zinc in an electrochemical manner. Plating uses pure zinc or zinc and nickel.
Electrical plates are also called electronic plates or silicon plates. Compared to regular steel plates, silicon plates contain more silicon, featuring good electric and magnetic characteristics
Stainless steel is a special steel featuring a splendid surface and good resistance to rust. As a high value-added product, stainless steel can be used for diverse areas without requiring any additional treatment.
Featuring white metallic gloss, titanium is light, extremely strong and highly resistant to corrosion. Its main applications include shipbuilding, power generation and medical devices.
