Cold Reduction Steel

Sheet and strip are cold reduced to the desired thickness for the following reasons: 1) to obtain the desired surface, 2) to impart desired mechanical properties, 3) to make gauges lighter than the hot strip mill can produce economically, and 4) to produce sheet and strip of more uniform thickness. Cold reduction can be accomplished either in sheets or in coils, but reduction in coils is considerably more economical and is the more common practice.
