What is cold-formed steel?

Cold-formed steel is steel that has been shaped at room-temperature, rather than with heat. This makes the material easy to work with and manipulate, yet maintains the durable properties of steel. It is primarily used in the automotive and construction industry due to its lighter weight (compared to hot steel) and lower cost.
