Copper Slag

Copper Slag


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. 

Common Uses:

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