We present research results on the transformation of whisker defects produced by less-severe reduction modes in the last rolling step in a two-high reversing stand into surface defects in the final metal product. The number and surface distribution of rolling-skin defects were observed to be higher within two strips at diametrically opposite positions along the perimeter and formed from whisker defects.
