Cold rolling work hardens the material, so it is stronger and stiffer, with a smooth surface. It is typically used where surface finish is important, like body panels.
Not saying your wroong but from a machinist standpoint everytime you surface cold rolled the center gets hotter and cools leaving a dip inthe center of the cold rolled.....it really sucks to make precision parts out of.
