Carbon Steel Sheet

Carbon steel sheet is material produced from coil and is most commonly found in thicknesses less than .180.  Steel retains its original shape and form, and must be treated before or during fabrication to provide the desired flatness.  In addition, different alloys exhibit different properties of hardness, strength, temperature resistance and corrosion resistance.

It is used in many diverse applications, including:

  • Architectural and construction framing, structural framing and ductwork
  • Cabinets, enclosures and frames for machinery, medical devices, electronics and more. 

Acme Metals offers an extensive inventory of steel sheet in many finishes and materials, including:                               

  • Hot Rolled
  • Cold Rolled Steel
  • Galvanized
  • Galvannealed

Our expert staff is available to help you select the best material for your application.

Hot Rolled Sheet

Hot rolled sheets are produced at elevated temperatures on rolling mills and generates a material that is resistant to work hardening and exhibits reduced levels of deformation residual stress.  Material rolled in the hot rolled condition can require more extensive leveling practices, such as temper passing or stretcher leveling downstream to eliminate coil memory.  In addition, hot-rolling may leave surface imperfections such as scale or pits which require additional finishing for a smooth surface.

Products manufactured using hot rolled sheet include structural parts such as I-beams and H-beams, rails, stampings, automotive and equipment components.

Acme Metals offers the following hot rolled sheet:

  • ASTM A1011 CS Type B

Cold Rolled Sheet

Cold rolling is used to further treat hot rolled steel sheet to increase its strength and its strength-to-weight ratio and enable it to hold tighter tolerances during fabricating and machining. In addition, cold rolling is used to smooth and finish the surface of hot rolled steel.  The processes used to improve the surface finish and to size the cold rolled sheet more precisely include chemical or mechanical descaling and cold rolling or polishing.

When the protective oxide surface normally found on hot rolled sheets is removed during cold rolling, it leaves a surface finish that is considered perishable. Great care must be taken during handling, storage, and shipment to preserve and protect this smooth, slick, surface.

Applications Using Cold Rolled Sheet

Cold rolled steel sheet is used for engineered products that require tight tolerances and coated surfaces.  These include:

  • Appliances, including stoves, ovens, refrigerators, washers, dryers and small appliances
  • Exposed automotive and aircraft components
  • Building frames
  • Deep-drawn shells
  • Stamped parts.

ASTM A1008 CS Type B Sheet


ASTM A1008 CS Type B sheet is a cold rolled low carbon, high-strength steel-alloy sheet with improved formability.. It is manufactured by annealing and temper rolling hot rolled steel sheets to provide formability, surface texture and flatness. The surface is matte finish and is oiled to prevent rust, allowing for use in exposed applications.


Acme inventories A1008 CS Type B sheet, which is used for the following products:

  • Appliances
  • Exterior automotive components
  • Stamped parts
  • Drawn parts such as furniture components
  • Shelving
  • Signs.
