Feature about Hot-Rolled Stainless Steel Strip
Compare to cold rolled stainless steel strip, the hot rolled strip is thicker some, and hot rolled strip usually look like white without bright, but cold rolled a little bright.
Use stainless steel strip to make higher efficiency for continuous punching line
Usually, the narrow flat hot-rolled stainless steel is delivery as flat bar, but sometime as strip, especially when the strip will be continuous stamping as small metal parts to make higher efficiency. Because by strip will make the feeding material cost down compare to flat bar. The flat bar will be used when metal part is a litter long with flatness requirement.
Stainless steel strip be stored, delivery more convenience
The hot rolled stainless steel flat bar always with a certain length, and with the requirement on the loading, unloading and delivery vehicle. So metal part factory prefers purchase stainless steel strip if their stamping machine is suitable for strip feeding to improve the transporting and producing efficiency well.
Tax refund rate for stainless steel strip and stainless steel coil
In HS-CODE system, the strip HS-CODE is different with coil, usually, the width point is 600mm.
In China, as China government policy, the width below 600mm is export as a strip with 9% tax refund, but the width 600mm or above the product is export as a coil with 13% tax refund.
