Metal Fabricating Glossary
- An abbreviation for cold rolled, which is a classification of metal that has had additional treatment after it has been hot rolled, pickled, and oiled. The metal is moved through a series of rollers which provide uniformity in thickness of the metal and improve the surface smoothness. This process is done at room temperature.
