Cold rolled carbon steel plate is a type of carbon steel plate that is processed through a cold rolling method. Unlike hot rolling, which involves heating the steel above its recrystallization temperature, cold rolling occurs at room temperature or slightly below.
Cold rolling results in excellent dimensional accuracy and precise thickness control. The steel plate is compressed and elongated during the cold rolling process, leading to a more uniform thickness across the entire plate.
Cold rolling increases the hardness and strength of the carbon steel plate. The compression and deformation during the rolling process align the grain structure, resulting in improved mechanical properties, including higher tensile strength and yield strength.
It’s important to note that cold rolled carbon steel plates are typically not as ductile as hot rolled plates, and they may require additional processing steps, such as annealing or heat treatment, to improve their formability and toughness.
