Iron

There are a number of different types of iron with different characteristics. We can help you choose the right material for your project.

 

TYPES OF IRON

There are many different types of and names for iron. Below is a select list:

  • Fe37
  • SJ235 (S235)

  • Domex 240
  • Domex 420
  • Domex 700
  • Hardox
  • Corten

 

COLD-REDUCED METAL SHEETS

Cold-reduced metal sheets are hot-rolled plates flattened when cold. This increases the tolerances and improves the surface. Cold-reduced metal sheets are typically used as surface coverings of domestic appliances or steel cabinets for the industry. The thickness of the plates varies from 0.5 to 2.0 mm.

 

TYPES OF COLD-REDUCED METAL SHEETS

- Regular DC01 sheets

- Galvanised plates with zinc – a standard 275 g/km2 solution or an eco-friendly 100 g/km2 solution

- Special aluzinc coverings

- Lacquered plates

 

HOT-ROLLED PLATES

Hot-rolled plates are flattened when hot and has a rough surface with a wide or high tolerance. Hot-rolled plates have a thickness of 5-16 mm. They are used for wind turbines and agricultural machinery.

 

PICKLED HOT-ROLLED PLATES

Hot-rolled plates have a rough surface. To achieve a smoother surface, the plates may be pickled. Pickling involves cleaning the surface in a pickling bath, creating a more attractive finish. Subsequently the plates may be processed in a laser processing plant.

Pickled plates are cheaper and have a surface quality that matches the 2.99 mm DC01 sheets previously used.
