Cold Rolled Strip From Generations of Experience

Our global network of distribution centers allows us to strategically align our industry expertise with your material needs. With nearly a century of experience, and our dedicated team of metallurgists, Ulbrich is ready to assists you in your next stainless steel and special metal strip coil application. Cold rolled strip is a popular metal product within the aerospace, medical, automotive, and nuclear industry where it is stamped, deep drawn, or formed using other methods for various applications.

Rolling Mill Workers

Rolled in-house to the lightest gauges

Ulbrich has been supplying metal strip in over 165 alloys for multiple generations. Working with our in-house equipment and rolling mill team, your order of precision strip steel can be slit, cut-to-length, rolled to the thinnest gauges, annealed to various common or custom tempers, and more. At Ulbrich our customers come first, so we're able to meet the needs of orders large and small. If you're still unsure, inquire about a small sample order today!

Slitter

Strip Coil Slitting & Edge Condition

Our slitting machines cut strip coil at finished gauge and temper into the width you order from us. Apart from width: edge condition, coil support, coil inner diameter, coil size, interleaf and accumulation method are all characteristics of the final product that are realized during final slitting. Our operators will make adjustments to the clearance as they are preparing to slit in order to minimize the burr as much as possible. Once a coil is slit to final width it can be packaged and delivered to your door!

Manufacturing

Insights

Ulbrich Stainless Steels & Special Metals, Inc. produces extremely flat strip across its entire length and width. We pay special attention to consistency and accuracy of the of flatness, thickness, and mechanical properties strip coil and foil products to ensure that there are no weak spots. With nearly a century of experience, Ulbrich has served a wide variety of industries, making for precise and dependable manufacturing processes. We supply corrosion resistant wire for numerous applications from medical to aerospace and even provide resistance wire for vape pen manufacturing.

Tempers

We engineer our products to each customer's requirements and specifications. Our team customizes solutions to enhance your stainless steel product and processes. Our custom tempers range from drawing quality, coining tempers to extra full hard.

Camber

Camber tolerances are available closer than the published commercial range noted below upon request:

For strip less than or equal to 1.5″ wide: .5 inches in 8 feet (less than or equal to 38mm: 13mm in 2.5m)

Camber is measured by placing an 8 foot (2.5 meter) straight edge against the concave edge of the strip

Flatness

Standard flatness is .020 PIW or critical flatness of .010″ PIW (refer to sales for flatness options per material/thickness/width)

Coil Coatings

When you need the surface of the coil protected during your processing operations, we can apply various peelable Plastisol PVC coatings and pre-plated options. Depending on your requirements, the protective coatings can be applied to the coil in various thicknesses, adhesion properties, colors, and opacity.

For more sophisticated coatings and plating that function well beyond protecting the surface, Ulbrich works with several outside vendors and can supply you with the complete product. No need to send your coil to a coater and deal with the logistics, scrap, and paperwork.

Precision Processing
PTFE Molykote® acts as a permanent lubricant on steel
Nitrile Rubber coating for sound dampening and sealing applications
Adhesives to bond EPDM and TPV to steel
Coatings for decorative trim applications
Electroplated Strip

In addition to custom coating options, Ulbrich offers plating services.
