The flat carbon steel is a hot or cold rolled strip product also known as a plate product. Flats are actually thin strips of mild steel having the thickness of the strip commonly varying between 10mm to 200mm and the thin flat rolled flat rolled product's size varies from 3 mm to 10 mm.
Steel flats are produced by the utilization of relatively smooth, cylindrical rolls on rolling mills. Generally the width to thickness ratio of flat rolled products is fairly large. Various grades and sizes of materials can be selected to meet diversified requirements for automobiles, appliances, construction etc.,
Flats are designated by Width and Thickness. For Example 100mm width and 6 mm thickness is designated as " FLAT 100X6". Unit Weight of Flats will be followed on my next post
