What is it?
Secondary steel refers to any process that is done after the initial steel making. This type of steel does not have mill certifications. Generally, secondary steel is a less expensive choice compared to primary steel. This can also refer to steel that has a defect and does not meet customer specifications.
Secondary steel is available in a variety of different lengths, dimensions or types, and can be processed to meet customer specifications. For businesses who do not need to use prime steel, the use of secondary steel can be a good alternative as its demand varies from that of prime steel, and therefore, can provide with cost benefits to its users.
