Copper Slag

Copper Slag

Description:

Copper Slag is an aggressive abrasive frequently used in new steel and steel maintenance applications. Its bulk density and angular shape give it an aggressiveness that provides clean, fast-cutting action, considerably increasing production rates.
Faster cutting also means that abrasive consumption is reduced, saving you money on disposal costs and clean-up labor. Shipping costs are reduced from reusing this recyclable material.

Common Uses:

  • Manufacturing/Maintenance of Storage Tanks
  • Water Towers, Ship Yards
  • Structural and Plate Steel
  • Oil Fields and Offshore Platforms
