Hot rolled steel from Shanghai Metal Corporation features stable quality and a wide variety steel types. We provide hot rolled steel strips and coils in various standards from mild steel to high strength steel. We also have a wide range of sizes in accordance with your needs.
Hot rolled strip is traditionally split in to two categories, narrow strip and wide strip.
Narrow Strip mill numbers have declined in recent years due to the inherently higher costs of production.
They differ from the wide strip mills in a number of ways.
Firstly they offer greater flexibility in terms of the variety of grades they offer,
the range of sizes they produce and the types of finishes available.
Along with the capability to offer smaller quantities and specialist tolerances they are well placed to deal directly with end users.
If material is required with a natural mill edge (rather than slit) the narrow mills are the only source.
Furthermore a number of high carbon and alloy grades are only available from narrow strip mills.
Their inherent flexibility means they are able in most cases to deal directly with end users,
and therefore normally they do not distribute through service centres.

Packing Information of Hot Rolled Steel Strip
Shanghai Metal Products are packed and labeled according to the regulations and customer's requests. Great care is taken to avoid any damage which might be caused during storage or transportation. In addition, clear labels are tagged on the outside of the packages for easy identification of the product I. D. and quality information.
1) Shanghai Metal Standard
Wide Strip mills produce the largest percentage of flat rolled products.
Normally the mill will have little downstream processing which means that most requires further processing such as slitting, blanking, etc. before it is in a useable form. Most of their product therefore goes on to service centres for onward distribution.
For the majority of hot strip requirements the service centres will be the most likely source of material.
They will normally be able to offer most standard grades of deep drawing qualities,
high strength low alloy and general purpose strip for press working, blanking and fabrication work.
