A1008 Cold Rolled Commercial Steel Type B

A1008 (AISI 1008) cold rolled (CR) steel sheet exhibits improved formability over hot rolled sheet. ASTM A1008 CR is produced by annealing and temper rolling hot rolled steel sheets. This process provides formability, improved surface texture and flatness.
Alro stocks ASTM A1008 CR (Cold Rolled) CS (Commercial Steel) Type B carbon sheet.

Properties of A1008 Steel Sheet

A1008 is a standard specification for cold rolled, carbon steel. The process of cold rolling the sheet creates a smooth surface which is typically oiled to prevent surface rust from forming. Compared to hot rolled steel, A1008 is known for having excellent weldability and formability. The cold rolling process also creates good drawing and spinning characteristics and a steel sheet that works well in most common steel processing options.

Typical Uses of A1008 Carbon Sheet

Because steel sheet is a durable, versatile material, it is used in a wide range of structures and applications including construction, framing, ductwork, machinery framing, and many other industrial applications.

As a material A1008 is typically used in applications where it will not be exposed to elements due to potential for aging. The surface is usually oiled to help reduce aging. Cold rolled sheet is often selected for applications like truck beds, truck cab backs, and areas not exposed to the elements that require strength.
A1008 is typically bought to meet chemistry requirements rather than physical requirements. For that reason, physical properties are generally not provided unless requested prior to production. Any material can be sent to a third party after production to be tested for physical properties.

About Cold Rolled Steel Sheet

Cold rolling is a processing technique that presses metal through rollers at temperatures below the material’s recrystallization temperature. The process increases the yield strength and hardness of the steel, sometimes by as much as 20% depending on the specific processes used. It can also reduce the grain size of the metal, improve its surface finish, and hold tighter tolerances. By keeping the material below the recrystallization temperature, the metal becomes less malleable, making cold rolling a labor-intensive process. It can also produce thinner sheets than hot rolling.
