Cold Rolled Steel C1010

Grade Summary: Cold Rolled C1010 Steel is produced from rimmed, capped and semi-killed steel and are intended for exposed or unexposed parts involving bending, moderate drawing or forming and welding. This material should be painted or plated to prevent rust. Cold Rolled C1010 has a higher carbon content that C1008 resulting in slightly harder material. This grade of material is commonly used in the manufacturing of electric-resistance welded (ERW) tube, it can be obtained in the as-welded condition (flash-in) or in the flash-controlled condition.

Typical Applications: Machinery stands, Exhaust tubes, Handles, Hand rails, Display stands, Conveyor rollers, Most Metal Fabrications.

Available products: Round Tube, Square Tube, Rectangular Tube
