Cold Finished (CF) Bar
For over twenty years, Millennium has been selling cold finished bars to its customers. Millennium's stock of cold finished bars is very strong, with both regular cold drawn and turned and polished. We have a wide array of sizes, shapes, and grades such as 1144 and 1215 in order to meet your specific needs. Also, we have round, square, hex, and flat bars available.
After being heated up, cold finish steel is forced through a die that is smaller than the steel, resizing it. This process improves tolerances as well as the strength of the bar. Cold finish steel also has better surface appearances and is straighter than its hot rolled counterpart.
Because of its improved strength, cold finish bar is typically used in applications that could be considered high stress scenarios.
