Starting 2012 ArcelorMittal are looking to extend its European availability of Non Prime material into the UK market.
Non Prime, Seconds, Declasse, Downgrades, Over Rollings etc, are all terms given to this type of material but let's not rush to discount the value of the material itself.
Non Prime as it is recognised, is a by product of steel producing mills all over the world. During the steel making process, certain production issues can and do occur. This is the point at which material is downgraded and devalued into categories, dependant upon the nature of the defect.
Cat 1 : Lowest defect
Cat 4: Highest defect
(to clarify which category is best suited for your application, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org)
Products are available in :
Hot Rolled Dry and also Pickled & Oiled
Cold Reduced : Forming, Deep Drawing and High Strength Grades
Hot Dipped Coated Products : Galvanised, Aluzinc, Aluminsed and Magnelis (improved corrosion properties)
(material is suplied by our Northern and Southern European Steel Producing Mills)
