Metal surfaces go through a lot. From facing exposure to inclement weather and enduring the wear and tear of everyday life, it’s no surprise that surface damage like holes, dents, and rust can happen over time. While blemishes are commonplace for various metals, you don’t have to live with the unsightly appearance. At Tampa Steel & Supply, we offer many additional services alongside our metal products including blasting, priming, and galvanizing to help you prevent and restore any blemishes or wear and tear to your metal.
Blasting is the answer to a variety of metal problems. Things like unsightly rust and old paint don’t stand a chance against the blasting technique. The blasting process easily removes everything from rust to paint to scale and corrosion from metal surfaces. The result? Metal surfaces that are ready to be primed and painted or galvanized.
Primer is a type of paint that is commonly used to seal out air and act as a protective barrier between surfaces and a more durable top coat of paint. By blending epoxy and other premium resins, primers can offer excellent corrosion resistance and adhesion characteristics. At Tampa Steel & Supply, we proudly carry Sumter Coating’s premium paints, including various primers to help prevent and restore any metal blemishes. Let us facilitate your own priming.
Galvanizing is the process of applying a protective zinc coating to various metals to prevent rust. Once the zinc dries, it acts as a sacrificial coating to protect the metal from blemishes. At Tampa Steel & Supply, we offer galvanized spray, an organic cold galvanizing compound, to help repair and protect various metal surfaces. Additionally, we offer hot dip galvanizing, which is a process where the material is dunked into a tank of molten zinc.
