The Use of Steel in Mining, Oil & Gas
The equipment and vehicles used in mining operations must be capable of withstanding the considerable stress and impacts that they will inevitably encounter in such a volatile industry. Every breakdown is expensive for the business, and keeping equipment and machines running is imperative for greater profit and productivity. Metalcorp provides special steels and steel solutions for the mining industry, allowing businesses in the sector to better meet those challenges of wear and stress.
Metalcorp: Quality Australian Steel
There has been an increase in the amount of imported steel entering the Australian market. A proportion of this material however has been manufactured to standards other than the Australian Standard, and has been proven inferior to Australian made steel in its major dimensions and properties of depth, base metal thickness, yield strength and the protective coating mass. In the Mining, Oil and Gas sectors, conditions are harsh so it is imperative that the steel used in these businesses meets the highest quality standards.
Metalcorp’s Australian Made Steel is thick, sturdy and strong; manufactured by Australians for Australian conditions.
