Hot Rolled Steel Contrasting to Cold Rolled Steel
Cold rolled steel on the left and Hot Rolled Steel with Mill Scale on the Right. Mill scale is the dark blue grey surface present on hot roll materials. It will not take patina, it is a very tough oxide layer created during the manufacturing process at the steel mill. Cold Roll steel arrives without this layer and can be processed with patina after cleaning. Notice the presence of scratches on the cold roll material. These can be expected or your fabricator may have to add additional mechanical finishing to remove them.
