About Steel Bar

Steel bars are primarily used in frameworks of buildings and structures. Steel bars are manufactured from steel billet, which is a semi-finished product of steel in flat, square, and found shapes. SteelScout supplies hot rolled steel bars of various shapes, along with standard sizes, and lengths for different grades of steel. Customised lengths as per your order requirements are also available for procurement from SteelScout. All steel bars supplied by SteelScout are CE certified and conform to the European standards of steel quality.

Steel bars specifications, types, and characteristics:

Steel bars are manufactured from ferrous and non-ferrous metals and alloys forming different grades of mild steel, carbon steel, high yield tensile steel, boron steel, and alloy steel. The manufacturing process of steel bars includes hot rolling and cold rolling process. Steel billets are heated up at high temperatures to allow them to be softened for the extrusion of required steel bar shape in the rolling mill. The heated billet passes through rolling mill where the heated square billet is forged into flat, square, or round shaped bars. The bars thus formed in the rolling mill are then allowed to undergo the cooling process.The following types of steel bars are available:

Flat bar Flat bars as the name suggests are rectangular shaped flat bars with a thickness ranging from 3 mm to 25 mm. These bars are easy to weld in place, cut in any size, and bend, due to their malleable nature.

Square The square bar is equal sided in its width and height. Square steel bars are customized to have rounded edges instead of the usual sharp edges as per requirement.

Round Round bars are available as round and half round square edge shaped bars.

Hexagonal Hexagonal steel bars are 6-sided hexagon shaped and all 6 sides are equal in dimension.

SteelScout supplies CE marked steel bars of all shapes, and there is a multitude of sizes stocked readily with our 70 suppliers in all grades and finishes for any quantity that you require.
