Quality Starts with World-Class Raw Material
Blair metallurgists work closely with melting mills in North America and around the world to specify optimum quality "hot bands" for each application. These hot mills perform the melting, slab casting and hot rolling processes that establish the chemistry, microstructure and thickness of our raw material coils. Before Blair receives hot bands, they are also pickled in hydrochloric acid to remove the outer layer of oxide scale, which prepares the surface for cold rolling to thinner gauges.
