Steel and Allied Products
Our international network enables us to establish a direct presence in many markets. Our local presence supports the development of close relations with our business partners while our international network brings together buyers and sellers of steel in different parts of the world enabling us to offer global solutions to customers.
We offer the following products :
|Hot Rolled Coil (HRC)
Hot rolled coil is rolled on a hot strip mill from slabs. It can be found in the market in coil or sheet form and is further processed into finished products by the manufacturer. Hot rolled coil is typically 2-25mm thick and up to 2,250mm wide.Hot rolled coil is produced as a feedstock for cold rolled coil and coated coil, but also for direct use in a variety of industrial applications including steel tubes used in transport, construction, shipbuilding, gas containers, pressure vessels and energy pipelines. Hot rolled sheet with an anti-slip surface and a diamond or teardrop pattern is typically used for stairs, industrial floors and tailboards for goods vehicles.
|Cold Rolled Coil (CRC)
Cold rolled steel is a 'flat' steel product. The material is manufactured from hot rolled steel, the thickness of which is further reduced on a strip mill without the use of heat. The resulting thinner and flatter material is known as cold rolled steel. Typical thickness is from 0.15 to 3 mm. Typical width is from 600 to 2,100 mm.Finished cold rolled steel coil has excellent forming properties, electromagnetic properties, paintability and weldability It is suitable for fabrication by forming, pressing and bending. Applications include domestic applications, automotive manufacturing, lighting fixtures, electrical components (stators, rotors), various kinds of sections, roofing applications, profiled sheets and wall elements.
Tinplate is cold reduced steel sheet coated with a thin layer of tin. Tin mill products are produced in a variety of types including electrolytic tinplate, electrolytic chromium coated steel and black plate, an uncoated product. It has good corrosion resistance and food compatibility � although many products require a thin coating of lacquer to maximise the shelf life of the contents.Around 90% of tinplate is used in packaging, with food and drink cans the biggest market, but it is also widely used for other consumer and general packaging, such as aerosols, paints and oils.
Heavy or structural sections are steel products such as beams or columns which are usually formed with a specific cross section shape e.g. H, I or U.Used to build large structures such as multi-storey buildings and bridges.
Hot rolled from steel billet, wire rod is delivered as coil, most commonly at 5.5mm dia, but in sizes up to 60mm diameter. Close control of final cooling is a critical part of production. The most important characteristic for determining a rod's end use is its drawability; the extent to which the rod's diameter can be reduced during the drawing process.Low carbon rod is used for undemanding applications like fencing wire and concrete reinforcing mesh, while medium and high carbon rod goes into higher performance uses like steelcord for car tyre reinforcement. Some rod (cold heading carbon and alloy grades) is used to make fasteners (bolts, screws, nails, rivets), and alloy rod is commonly machined into products like engineering bearings. Some rod provides filler metal in welding operations.
