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.

Cold drawn sizes: 1″ to 6″ rounds.  We also produce squares, flats and hex shapes.

Cold drawn grades (but not limited to): 1018 – 1030 – 1045 – 10V45 – 1050 – 1117 – 1141 – 1144 – 1212 – 1213 – 12L14 – 1215 – 1522 – 1541 – 4130 – 4140 – 4150 – 8620.

Cold drawn lengths: up to 40′ long.
