|Bulb Flats are the plate stiffener of choice for the shipbuilding industry, due primarily to their excellent strength to weight ratio and the fact that their shape prevents the build up of corrosive debris. Up to 20% of the ship's hull steel could possibly employ these sections and they are used in both commercial and military vessels.
Bulb flats will be produced on Steel of West Virginia's #1 Rolling Mill, which is our special section mill. Six sizes are planned (140 mm through 240 mm) and several of these sizes have multiple weights, for a total of 22 different sections as listed at right.
