A steel coil is a steel product whose width is greater than its thickness (such as a sheet or strip) that has been wound or coiled after rolling. Depending on the rolling process, steel coils can be hot rolled or cold rolled, but can also be galvanized for additional weather and rust resistance. Steel coil is commonly used for applications where dimensional tolerances, including strength and surface finish quality, are critical.

Steel Coil FAQs
Steel coils are common in many industries and applications that require accuracy and strict tolerances. These include wall and roof panels, ships, power stations, filing cabinets, school lockers, steel sheds, and more.
The primary categories of coils are hot rolled and cold rolled, which designate the temperature at which the steel is shaped and manufactured. However, other designations you may see for steel coils include galvanized, painted, and aluminized.
Coil slitting involves cutting a wide coil of sheet steel into narrower bands or strips. This gives the customer a more tailored product beyond the standard coil width to fit their needs and specifications. The primary equipment used are an uncoiler, slitter, and recoiler.

While slitting (cut to width) is the most common form of coil processing, coils are also cut to length to fit a project’s needs. Shorter lengths lead to smaller coils that are easier to transport, among other factors.
