Forms of supply
The strips can be supplied either in coils or as straightened lengths of 0.5-4.0 meter (1.6-13.1 feet). The coil weight is max. 5 kg/mm (280 lbs/in.) of strip width.
Hardening and tempering of the strip steel is needed to achieve the correct finish and to meet the properties required by the end user.

Other sizes can be supplied to meet specific requirements.
The thickness and width tolerances are +/- tolerances to the nominal size. The normal tolerance classes for most of our strip products are T2 and B1. Tighter tolerances as well as other tolerance limits can be offered upon request.
