Cold Drawn

Cold Drawn Steel Bars

Northlake has one of the largest cold draw benches in North America, capable of producing cold drawn (or also referred to as cold finished) bars to 6” diameter rounds in lengths to 40’.  All bars are cleaned by shot blasting before drawing to remove hot mill scale then pulled through a carbide die which results in a product with higher tensile and yield strength , smoother surface finish and closer size tolerance.  Bars are then straightened on one of our 2-roll straighteners, saw cut to length to produce a clean, usable end, oiled and shipped.  As with everything we do, customer supplied bars are always welcome.

Northlake is pleased to announce our newest product, CD squares!  Produced with the same high quality as our CD rounds, our squares meet or exceed ASTM A108 tolerances (ASTM A108-18, Standard Specification for Steel Bar, Carbon and Alloy, Cold-Finished, ASTM International, West Conshohocken, PA, 2018).  Check back often, because we’ll soon be producing cold drawn flats and more cold drawn hexagons.
