A1011/A1018 CS Type B P&O Steel Sheet

Alro stocks A1011/1018 CS Type B P&O (Pickled & Oil) Hot Rolled Sheet (also known as ASTM A1011) This product is a hot rolled commercial quality steel suitable for many applications where normal surface imperfections are not objectionable. A1011 Type B can be bent at average room temperatures without cracking on itself. It is known for having high strength and excellent formability.
Heat treatment and other processing operations must be properly performed so as to not detrimentally affect the properties of the steel. Commercial quality (More commonly referred to as "Commercial Steel or CS") will meet the bend test requirements of ASTM A1011/1018 CS Type B.
The "P&O" refers to a process that treats the steel sheet with oil as a rust preventative.
