General Info About A569 Hot Rolled Strips

A569 hot rolled strip steel, widely considered a high-value sheet metal, is ASTM A569 steel that is flat rolled into coils using a hot rolled process. A569 steel has soft and ductile properties that make it bendable and easily welded. A569 is low-carbon steel with a carbon content of 0.15%. It is typically used in manufacturing and construction industries and in situations where bending, moderate forming, and welding may be involved.

More Details About A569 Hot Rolled Strips

  • Advantages/Disadvantages


    • A569 hot rolled strip steel is extremely high-value and affordable
    • It is flexible and can be bent into various shapes without cracking
    • Due to its soft and ductile properties, A569 steel can be easily welded
    • It has strong corrosion resistance


    • A569 may have a rough looking surface if it is not acid-pickled
  • Industries

    A569 hot rolled strip steel is used in the manufacturing and construction industries. It is also implemented in the automotive and agricultural industries. It is typically used as structural parts or frames.

  • Applications

    A569 hot rolled strip steel applications include agricultural implements, automotive components or frames, structural parts or frames, general fabrication purposes, and barrels and drums. It is typically used in construction or the manufacturing of automobiles or vehicles for agriculture.

  • Machining

    Due to A569 steel’s soft and ductile properties, it is extremely easy to cut through. Its resilience makes it very difficult to break or crack. This means that A569 hot rolled strips can be cut into various shapes and sizes.

  • Welding

    The ductile and soft properties of A569 steel also make it easy to weld. A569 steel can be welded to make different structural parts or frames. It is often used in other applications where welding is required due to its properties.

  • Heat Treatment

    A569 hot rolled strips can be heat treated. It can be heat treated from temperatures of 1491°C to 1752°C.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are hot rolled strips?


    Hot rolled strips are long, rectangular pieces of flat steel, formed through the hot rolling process, that are rolled into large coils. This differs from sheet because it is one long piece rolled up, and differs from flats because strips are wider than flats.

  • What is the difference between hot rolled and cold rolled steel?


    Hot rolled steel is formed by a three step process where a billet is heated so it is hot enough to be manipulated again. It is then rolled out into flatter sheet metal. Cold rolled steel is hot rolled steel that has more processing done to it to improve mechanical properties. More pressure is required to press it into a desired shape.

  • What is the hot rolled process?


    The hot rolled process is a three step process. It starts with the slab or billet of raw steel. That bllet is then heated so that it becomes more easily bendable. Then it is rolled out into a thinner metal sheet while it is still hot. There can be a final fourth step if the hot rolled steel is pickled.

  • Is A569 the same as A1011?


    A1011 is a standard specification for steel and defines 3 major steel grades: high strength low alloy steel, low carbon steel, and stainless steel. A569 falls under low carbon steel. This means that A569 is always A1011 steel, but A1011 steel is not always A569.

  • What is the difference between a569 vs a36?


    The difference between A569 and A36 steel lies in its carbon content. A569 steel is low carbon steel with a carbon content of 0.15% while A36 steel has a higher carbon content of 0.29%.
