Steels do not require pre-heating.

Hot-rolled Domex 100W (100 min. yield) is manufactured from .118 to .236 in., and Docol 100W cold reduced steel is produced between .0197 and .079 in. Oxide layer forms on steel surface within 2 years, which impedes corrosion-inducing moisture from entering steel. Weather-resistant steels suit containers, bridges, and utility poles. They can be fabricated without changing production procedures;...
