Our Minimum Order Quantities enable us to suit metal product orders of all sizes. Every metal product we provide has its own MOQ, and for cold rolled 1008/1010 steel, our MOQ is 30-60 lbs. While we can, and will, support orders for quantities smaller than this, the minimum lot charge will remain the same for any quantities ordered at, or below, a metal’s MOQ. Additional variables apply depending on material thickness, width, and additional processing.
In manufacturing hand tools or machine tools, like dies or drill bits, cold rolled 1008/1010 steel is a perfect choice. Properties that make this alloy steel the best option for tool manufacturing include high material hardness that makes it resistant to deformation and flattening, toughness and breakage resistance, and abrasion/erosion resistance.
When it comes to the construction industry, cold rolled steel has been increasing in demand, especially for framing applications. Framing made from cold rolled steel is both lighter and stronger than competing materials. In recent years, cold-formed steel framing has become the material of choice for multi-housing buildings like dormitories, hotels, and assisted living facilities.
Cold rolled 1008/1010 steel is ideal for use in home appliances and furniture. It has numerous qualities that lend themselves to lighting fixtures. This particular steel performs extremely well in applications requiring production precision. Finally, cold rolled steel works with a wide variety of surface finishes, providing a level of versatility that’s ideal in the home decor world.
