Cold Finished ASTM A1008
Cold finished ASTM A1008 is a type of low carbon steel that is processed by cold rolling to achieve its final dimensions and surface finish. This process results in improved strength, surface quality, and dimensional accuracy compared to hot rolled steel. Cold finished ASTM A1008 has good formability, weldability, and corrosion resistance, making it suitable for various applications.
Cold finished ASTM A1008 is commonly used in the manufacturing of parts that require good formability, such as automotive panels, appliances, and furniture. It is also used in the construction industry for roofing, siding, and structural components. The good weldability and corrosion resistance of cold finished ASTM A1008 make it suitable for applications in harsh environments, such as marine and industrial settings.
