A finished steel product such as sheet or strip which has been wound or coiled after rolling. Hot rolled sheets are produced at elevated temperatures on rolling
mills and generates a material that is resistant to work hardening and exhibits reduced levels of deformation residual stress. Material rolled in the hot rolled condition can require more extensive leveling practices, such as temper passing or stretcher leveling downstream to eliminate coil memory. In addition, hot-rolling may leave surface imperfections such as scale or pits which require additional finishing for a smooth surface.
