Product description

These lines process stainless steel from the cold rolling mill. Thermal processing is used in order to achieve a soft, uniform metallurgical structure, and subsequent scale removal is conducted in special electrolytic pickling processes (NEOLYTE). Final products may be skin-pass rolled and/or tension-leveled.
