Stainless Steel Cold Drawn & Hot Rolled
Cold Drawn: Cold drawn is the best and most cost effective way to form hex bars. This process would involve the annealed hot rolled and then cold drawn. By drawing stainless, it helps keep the edges of the hex sharp and uniform. The finish of cold drawn hex bar is smooth and has tighter tolerance. Stainless hex tolerance is always on the minus side. Materials offered in hex bars are guaranteed to be free machining and have one end chamfered to feed easier into machines bar feeders.
Hot Rolled: We offer sizes between 3” to 8”. We can offer hot rolled hex bars. Hot rolled hex bars have all the same durability qualities as cold drawn without the polish and wider tolerance.
Note: Orders over 3” are still considered special orders. Make sure to ask about the special order policy when contacting your sales advisor.

ROHS is to restrict certain dangerous substances commonly used in electronic and electronic equipment. Any time you see Rohs it is being checked for the presence of Lead (Pb), Cadmium (Cd), Mercury (Hg), Hexavalent chromium (Hex-Cr), Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), and Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE). For Cadmium and Hexavalent Chromium, there must be less than 0.01% of the substance by weight at raw homogeneous materials level. For Lead, PBB, and PBDE, there must be no more than 0.1% of the material, when calculated by weight at homogeneous raw materials. Any RoHS compliant component must have 100 ppm, or less of mercury and the mercury must not have been intentionally added to the component. In the EU, some military and medical equipment are exempt from RoHS compliance. (According to rohscompliantdefinition.com,2014)
