The Ideal Steel for Fabricators
EPS pickling delivers a clean, scale-free surface that makes manufacturers more productive.
The process doesn't affect steel chemistry, so you use the same grades/specs you always have. But now it will have a uniform surface with no contaminants - no mill scale, rust or oil. That means nothing comes between your EPS steel and the welding arc, the stamping die or the laser beam.
This creates far-reaching benefits for fabricators (see the slideshow ), not to mention the fact that they no longer have to order and stock HRPO, hot roll black, pickled dry or SCS. EPS can replace them all.
Consistent Application Success
EPS pickled steel has amassed an impressive record of application performance in manufacturing plants. This includes success in rollforming and tube production, stamping, laser and plasma cutting, welding, painting, drawing/spinning, cold reduction, wheel hub drawing/spinning and general fabrication. EPS has typically replaced HRPO in such processes and users agree EPS beats HRPO hands down. Hear what they have to say at the Users Testimonials page.
