The demand for sheet metal lies in the versatility of the possible use of the product in a wide variety of production and construction areas. Metal (steel) sheets can be used as:
- Ready-to-use product - cladding of structures and technical equipment.
- Blanks for the manufacture of a certain type of products (for example, rolled pipes with different cross-sectional configurations) or final parts.
At the same time, such an assortment as hot-rolled sheet products is processed not only with the help of cutting equipment, but also with the use of presses, as well as gas electric welding. Consumers should be aware that hot-rolled sheet prices depends , primarily from the grade of steel that was used for its manufacture. There are the following types:
- Depending on the percentage of carbon.
- Low alloyed and alloyed grades.
- Corrosion-resistant and corrosion-resistant assortment names.
Full information in accordance with the established GOST parameters is indicated in the technical passport of each batch (pack) of sheet metal along with other parameters that are necessary when choosing the desired type.
Classification by thickness and accuracy class
According to the standards in force in the territory of the country and most of the CIS countries, hot-rolled sheet metal products (roll analogues have other dimensions) are classified according to the following dimensional parameters (regardless of the steel grade and the method of further processing):
- Sheet width - from 500 to 4400 mm.
- Thickness - from 0.4 to 160 mm.
Due to the fact that this range of rolled metal products is produced using the technology of temperature heating of blanks before or during processing, the final product may have permissible dimensional deviations. The parameters depend on the precision class, which is divided into:
- "PN" is normal.
- "PV" - high.
- "ON" - extra high.
You can purchase hot-rolled metal products that meet the GOST parameters from reliable and conscientious suppliers using the online catalog of the independent Internet portal "SmartHard". The names of products presented on its pages are available at the bases of the capital region, are supplied to customers at a specified cost in any volume and a guarantee of compliance with the established deadlines on a contractual basis.
