Cold rolled strip

The product designations are based on those of AS/NZS 1595.

BlueScope Steel Cold rolled products are available with either matt or lustre finish. The matt finish is produced by rolling with mechanically roughened rolls. This finish is preferred for lacquer or paint finishes and is beneficial during drawing operations when used with a lubricant. This finish can be assumed when no surface is specified.

Lustre finish is a smooth finish for electroplating achieved by using specially prepared rolls. Some surface preparation by the plater may be necessary.

See individual product data sheets for more details about each product in the range.
