Alloy Steel 20 Hot Rolled Sheets & Plates. Hot rolled sheets and plates are produced by heating the Alloy Steel 20 material above its recrystallization temperature and then rolling it into the desired thickness. Hot rolled sheets and plates have a rough surface finish and are typically used in applications where aesthetics are not a primary concern but strength and durability are essential.
