Quality In Everything We Do
Blair is ISO-9001 and IATF 16949 certified by SRI through May 2020. We carefully choose and monitor our hot mill sources for quality. When possible, we match a preferred hot band supplier and heat lot quantities for each application to limit variation in chemistry and properties from coil-to-coil and order-to-order.
Blair does its own roll grinding to maintain control and consistency of the required surface texture.
Our lab facility performs testing for hardness, yield, tensile, elongation, microstructure, chemistry, surface topography and heat-treatment response.
We're proud to say our material quality reliability is demonstrated year after year by a rejection rate of less than 1/2% per year.
Blair's narrow-width tandem mills are designed to produce superior gauge control in very heavy gauge materials from low carbon to high carbon and alloy steels. Tolerances as tight as +/- .0005" are available on many items. Often, material is rolled at the finished width to insure the best control of shape elements like crown, wedge/taper and parallelism.
Overall, Blair is uniquely capable of producing consistent dimensions and properties in heavy thicknesses, head-to-tail, coil-to-coil, order-to-order and year-to-year.
