Flat Steel

Flat steel products consist of hot or cold rolled coils and sheets. Flat steel products are also available as galvanized and tin/chrome coated.

Although flat steel products have a wide range of use based on product characteristics, they are mainly used in automotive, white appliances, packaging, construction and radiator industries.

Raw Material: Hot Rolled Coil

Hot Rolled Coils are flat steel products obtained by applying high temperatures to the slab. After rolling, the steel becomes suitable for processing.

Hot-rolled coil is the main input for cold-rolled, galvanized and coated coils along with other flat steel products.

Raw Material: Zinc

Zinc (Zn) is a metal used to increase the corrosion resistance of iron and steel. It is used in the coating process for galvanized coils.
