Steel that has been roll pressed at extremely high temperatures is known as hot-rolled steel. Hot-rolled sheet can be shaped and formed easily. You can choose from hot-rolled steel of different shapes, grades and sizes. We can cut the steel to your exact specifications. Typical thickness Sheridan Metal Products Ltd works with is 16 GA. 0.059” thick to 1/2” plate.
Hot-rolled steel that undergoes further processing is called cold-rolled steel. This steel is processed in cold reduction mills where it is cooled and then rolled. This decreases its ductility and increases its hardness and strength. Cold-rolled steel is useful for projects where the major factors are surface condition, tolerances, concentricity and straightness. Typical thickness Sheridan Metal Products Ltd works with is 22 GA. 0.030” to 18 GA. 0.048” thick.
Aluminum has a variety of commercial applications in the construction and building industry. It is a silver-coloured low-density metal. The metal is commonly used in both cast and wrought forms. Apart from construction, the metal is also used in the transportation fields and aerospace industry. Stocks include:
Typical grade in stock - 3003 H 14
Typical size in stock - 48” x 120”
Typical sheet thickness in stock - 33 GA (.040” to 3/8”) thick
Stainless steel is comprised of steel and other elements such as molybdenum, silicon, chromium, nickel, aluminum and carbon. It is a steel alloy with greater corrosion resistance compared to alloy/carbon steel. It has a minimum chromium content of 10.5%, the element responsible for the increased corrosion resistance.
Common applications of stainless steel include:
Hot water tanks
The main benefits of stainless steel include:
Fire and heat resistance
The stainless steel products in stock at Sheridan Metal Products Ltd are:

Hot-rolled Pickled & Oiled (HRPO) Steel
Hot-rolled pickled and oiled steel sheet has extended longevity in corrosive environments. It is descaled of oxide film and oiled to help combat corrosion when in use and during storage. HRPO steel is used in automotive, shipping and construction industries to manufacture and machine smaller, precise steel components and parts. Typical thickness Sheridan Metal Products Ltd works with is 16 GA. 0.059” thick to 1/2” plate.
Galvanized Steel/Satin Coat Steel
Galvanization is the process of applying a protective zinc coating on steel or iron to prevent rusting. During the hot-dip galvanizing method, liquid zinc bonds to the iron in the steels and forms a protective layer which does not peel or flake. Parts made from galvanized steel do not require additional painting or coating. Galvanized steel is usually used in the automotive industry to improve the corrosion performance of exterior body panels of some models. Typical thickness Sheridan Metal Products Ltd works with is 22 GA. (0.030”) to 10 GA. (0.135”) thick.
On the other hand satin coat steel is galvanized steel that is further annealed to increase ductility and reduce hardness. It is also known as galvannealed steel. This type of steel is grey in appearance and can be easily painted. Galvannealed sheets offer good weldability, corrosion resistance and formability. They are commonly used to manufacture fireplaces, trailers, signs and housings. Typical thickness Sheridan Metal Products Ltd works with is 22 GA. (0.030”) to 10 GA. (0.135”) thick.
