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.
|mm (in.)||mm (in.)|
