Graphs: Nov. 2017 Scrap, U.S. CRC and China CRC Steel Costs

Metal connector plates and cold-formed steel components are manufactured from galvanized cold-rolled sheet steel (for a quick reference on cold-rolled versus hot-rolled, click here). At the request of its component manufacturer (CM) members, SBCA has researched steel price indexes and developed a series of graphs to help illustrate trends in the price of cold-rolled steel (from both the U.S. and China), along with Midwest scrap metal information. The previous October 2017 charts can be accessed here.
