A protective clear coat finish highlights the richness and durability of hot rolled steel. Natural mill scale, welds and grinder marks make each one unique in its own way.
Hot rolled steel has a very characteristic dark blue-grey mill scale oxide finish that is a result of the manufacturing process at the steel mill. The cooling process at the steel mill allows the metal to oxidize, producing a steel sheet that is blue-gray color towards the edges and dark gray towards the center. Similar to wood grain, marble or granite, each steel sheet is different.
