About Sheet Metal

Sheet metal is usually available in a variety of metal grades and quality standards; however, ensuring that certified sheet metal is of the right industrial standard is key to completing your projects successfully. Buying sheet metal conforming to all the quality standards from a reputed and reliable sheet metal supplier, like SteelScout, has great advantages and benefits.

Types, grades, and finish of sheet metal

Sheet metal suppliers provide various options of sheet metal supplies to choose from. Some of the commonly supplied sheet metal products are mild steel sheet metal, stainless steel sheet metal, copper sheet metal, and aluminium sheet metal. Although there are many variants of sheet metal, the aforementioned ones are the most widely used. Sheet metal is stocked as hot-rolled, cold-reduced, pickled and oiled, galvanised, and zinc-coated.

Hot-rolled, pickled and oiled steel sheet and coil:

This sheet metal is produced per BSI EN 10111:2008 specifications for grade DD11. It is widely used due to its excellent drawing and forming properties. The metal sheet coils are produced by hot-rolling and further processed for pickling in a hydrochloric acid bath to clean the surface scaling. Once pickled, the coil is then subjected to rinsing, drying, and oiling to provide anti-corrosive protection.

Cold-rolled steel metal sheet and coil–

This sheet metal is produced per the BSI EN 10130:2006 specifications for grade DC01. Hot-rolled steel is further processed for reduction and annealing. The additional processes impart greater strength and smoother surface finish to the metal sheet.

Galvanised and zinc-coated metal sheets

Galvanised metal sheets are produced per BSI EN 10346:2015 specifications for grades DX51D + Z, and DX52D + Z. Zinc-coated metal sheets are cold-rolled sheets produced per BSI EN 10152:2017 specifications for grades DC01+ZE 25/25 with a 2.5-micron zinc coating.
