Nucor Steel Sheet
In 1989, Nucor pioneered EAF thin-slab casting at our Crawfordsville, Indiana sheet mill. Since this breakthrough, we have become the market leader by continuing to invest in advanced sheet steel products and technologies.
Today, Nucor operates six strategically located sheet mills in Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Kentucky and South Carolina that utilize thin slab casters to produce flat-rolled steel for automotive, appliance, construction, pipe and tube and many other industrial and consumer applications. Our sheet mill capacity is approximately 12.1 million tons per year. We produce hot rolled, cold rolled, Castrip® ultra-thin cast steel (UCS), Surestride® floor plate, galvanized and galvannealed sheet.
Nucor steel sheet mill network is both geographically diverse as well as strategically positioned near rail, highway and major seaports, ensuring secure access to products and efficient delivery timeframes throughout North America.
Nucor Steel sheet is processed to its final thickness by rolling at high temperatures on a hot-rolling mill. This process can be taken a step further by pickling and oiling, which is a method of removing the surface oxides and applying an oil to improve lubricity and provide a more rust-resistant product.
Surestride™ floor plate is hot-rolled with a raised lug pattern that provides safe walking and working surfaces anywhere dusty, oily, or wet environments create hazardous conditions. This product is also available pickled and oiled.
An Ultra-thin Cast Steel (UCS) product exclusively offered by Nucor, Castrip® can be used in many applications, substituting for both hot-rolled and cold-rolled sheet. This is offered as a hot-rolled, pickled and oiled, or galvanized product.
This is hot-rolled steel that has been cold-rolled to its specified final thickness at room temperature and may be supplied as fully processed (annealed) or full hard.
This refers to steel sheet coated with a thin layer of zinc to increase its corrosion resistance. Our galvanizing is done through a hot-dip operation.
Here an extra tight coating of galvanizing metal (zinc) is applied to a soft steel sheet, after which the sheet is passed through an oven. The coating is dull gray without spangle.
