Steel Merchant Bar
The definition of merchant bar is different steel shapes such as squares, flats, rounds and angles that can be converted to different products. The uses of steel merchant bar are therefore wide and varied, and are used in all types of construction, marine, automotive and military situations. Steel that is to be formed into merchant bar is rolled through a specilaised steel rolling mill, in SteelForce's case we have a cold rolling steel mill located in China, which rolls the steel at room temperature and the metal is below its recrystallisation temperature. This increases the metal's strength through strain hardening by up to 20 percent.
Steel Merchant Bar comes in different shapes as previously mentioned and each shape is used for different applications.
Squares: Uses for squares are found in balustrades, windows and security doors
Angles: Found in power poles, bed frames and box trailers
Rounds: Steel rounds are used for axles and tent pegs
Flats: Used for connector plates and steel balustrades
Steel merchant bar is a very versatile way of producing steel products in different shapes for different applications. It's strength and durability are reasons why it is so commonly used in the construction and engineering fields.
