Hot Rolled Steel Tubing at T&B Tube
T&B Tube delivers hot rolled steel tubing in many sizes, wall thicknesses, and finishes. Strong and easy to machine, it’s perfect for a wide array of applications.
This tubing type is produced following ASTM A513 requirements, unless otherwise specified, from flat steel gradually rolled into a finished size and shape. It provides an array of advantages.
Why Hot Rolled Steel Tubing?
Hot rolled steel tubing is carbon steel rolled at a temperature above its recrystallization point, which is usually about 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit. When steel is heated past a recrystallization point, it becomes more malleable and is easily formed and shaped. Benefits of this steel tubing type are:
- Increased Durability
- Elevated Toughness
- Simple To Machine
- Easy To Weld
- More Affordable Than Cold Rolled Steel
When hot rolled steel tubes cool off, they shrink non-uniformly. As a result, there’s less control over the size and shape of the finished product.
This steel tubing type is also prone to scaling. If you seek hot rolled steel tubing without scaling, please check out our hot rolled pickled and oiled steel tubing products.
