Sandblasting Steel Pipe and Tube

It’s a fact that steel rusts. To counter oxidation, some manufacturers coat steel with an oily lacquer. This oil has a major downside: both rust and oil make steel difficult to work with. Fortunately, there are ways to protect steel from rust that don’t include slathering it with viscous, slippery oil.

Sandblasting is quick, cost-effective, and prepares steel surfaces for further processing. After sandblasting, paint adheres better, galvanizing is even stronger, and fabrication becomes much, much simpler.

Sandblasting steel is one of the many value-added services available at Totten Tubes.

If you have steel that you want to reuse or new steel to prepare for further processing, sandblasting is a great option.  Blasting services can remove old paint, coatings, rust, limescale, mold or other buildup. It can provide new steel with a mildy abrasive cleaning so you are left with a smooth service free of imperfections.  The sandblasting process cleans metal quickly without damaging the original product.
