In the construction industry, Hot Rolled Pickled and Oiled (HRPO) is an essential and indispensable item in constructions. Choosing a good steel supply helps projects ensure construction quality and optimize construction costs. In this article, MRS Steel will introduce the outstanding function and features of HRPO, the prevalent type of steel, in the most detail.

1. What is HRPO (hot rolled steel pickled and oiled)?

Hot rolled steel pickled and oiled (HRPO) is hot rolled steel with a temperature above 1,700 degrees F, higher than the crystallization temperature of many other steels. The process of hot rolling steel will start from steel billets, then heated, flattened into large rolls. The product is further kept at high temperature and run through the roller system to reach the finished product size. Depending on the needs of use, the steel will be cut and packed accordingly at high temperatures will make the finished steel easier to use.

2. Characteristics of hot rolled pickled and oiled

Hot rolled pickled and oiled, when just produced, will be black-gray and gradually turn to red clay over time, with a thickness of 1.00mm or more, rounded and rough edges. Then the steel will be coated with oil to protect the surface.

This steel can be left outdoors for a long time without preservation, so it is easy to transport and store when exporting. This factor also helps hot rolled pickled and oiled have a lower cost than many other types of steel.


3. Specifications

Specifications of HRPO are as follows:

1.5mm - 100mm x 1,000 - 2000mm x 6,000mm/12,000mm

Weight, dimension tolerance, and mechanical properties of hot rolled steel pickled and oiled will meet the following standards:

Japanese Standard: JIS G3101, G3106, G3131, G3132, G3193

American Standard: ASTM A568, A1011


4. Application of HRPO
