What Metal Fabrication Accessories Do I Need?

Whether you’re getting ready to start a project, or you’ve already gotten to building and just need to put on finishing touches, some helpful accessories can assist you in getting things done. Here are a few to consider:

Metal Paints and Coatings


If you’re looking for an easy way to protect your metal surfaces from corrosion, a rust-preventative coating is a must. In this humid Florida climate, especially in areas close to the gulf or bay, steel is extremely vulnerable to corrosion. At Tampa Steel and Supply, we offer a variety of metal paints and coatings that can be used for both protective and aesthetic purposes. Our line is fast drying and can be applied through airless spray, rolling, dipping or with a brush. We also offer a variety of brushes to help you apply a durable, great looking coat.

Metal Cleaner


Your metal work is beautiful and we want to help you keep it that way! To keep your steel looking its sharpest, regular cleaning is vital. There are lots of metal cleaners out there, but at Tampa Steel & Supply we offer products from FOZZ to fulfill your cleaning needs. A blend of phosphoric dichromate, a wetting agent and extenders, FOZZ cleaner not only cleans rust from metal, but prevents it from occurring as well!

Welding Safety Gear


Welding machines harness a lot of energy, making it absolutely necessary to take the proper safety precautions. Wearing safety gear while welding is not optional. From welding masks or glasses to heavy-duty gloves, most safety gear is easy to obtain. Just remember it’s better to be safe than sorry.
