DSI Metals offers hot and cold rolled bars in various sizes and specifications.

Cold Rolled Bars offer superior strength, well-suited for cold forming and bending, and can be cut-to-size.  Cold Rolled Bars lend a shinier surface than Hot Rolled.

Hot Rolled Bars are slightly rounded at the edges and have a scaly surface.  Hot Rolled Bars are easier to make, shape and form.


Cold Rolled Bars are commonly used in construction shafts, axles or fixtures.

Hot Rolled Bars are used in making railroad tracks and I-beams.

The term “rolled” is used to describe the finishing processes, creating a more refined product.
