LONG PRODUCTS

Merchant Bar

Merchant bar is a range of commodity carbon steel long products including round, square and hexagonal bars, angles, channels and flats. General lengths are 20 ft. and 6 meter and delivery comes in bundles. This is a common range for stockholders in the construction sector.

Structural Sections

Heavy or structural sections are steel products such as beams or columns produced from beam blanks. Sections which are usually formed with a specific cross section shape e.g. H, I or U.
General shapes are HEA/HEB/HP – IPE/WF –  UNP/Channel and can be supplied in lengths of 20 ft. or 6 meter up to around 60 ft. or 18 meter.

Welded Tubes

Welded tubes are made from hot rolled or cold reduced strip, sheet or plate. Welded tube includes hollow sections, black and galvanised gas/water pipe, scaffolding tube and large diameter pipe. Small and medium diameters are produced in continuous, multiple-roll mills that progressively bend incoming, unheated strip into a circular cross-section prior to welding along the longitudinal seam. Tube may subsequently be cold-drawn through dies to achieve precise dimensions and finish.
Galvanized pipe can be produced from galvanized strip or from cold rolled strip followed by a  galvanizing process.

Reinforcing Bar

Reinforcing bar (or Rebar) is formed from a steel billet, normally having surface deformations for use in reinforcing concrete. The bar can be produced in straight lengths as well as coiled.

Wire Rod

Hot rolled from steel billet, wire rod is delivered as coil, most commonly at 5.5mm dia, but in sizes up to 60mm dia. Close control of final cooling is a critical part of production. The most important characteristic for determining a rod’s end use is its draw ability; the extent to which the rod’s diameter can be reduced during the drawing process.

Seamless Tubes

Seamless tubes are made by rolling a preheated billet between offset rolls to create a tube shell. The tube shell is then elongated in a multi-stand rolling mill (with a mandrel) to achieve the desired wall thickness and a limited range of diameters. Tube diameter can also be achieved with a sizing collar, but for significant diameter changes the tube is reheated and passed through a stretch-reducing mill – a multi-stand mill that reduces outside diameter but not wall thickness. The seamless range also includes Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG.)
