I have never used it, but I am wondering how clean is it? Is all the mill scale gone?
For some reason, your post is making me hungry.
But this is what I found on a search:
Can HRPO steel be welded?
Because HRPO steel has a scale-free surface, welding is significantly improved: Eliminate weld seam grinding. Achieve precise measurement and welding of large fabrications without re-work with the use of robotic welding techniques. Reduce labor for manual welds.
And get pickled in the process!
It sounds like it might be worth while metal to try on the table.
I buy both cold rolled and hot rolled 16 gauge. I can’t tell a difference when cutting them.
I’ve gotten it a few times before and all the mill scale is gone. It looks like cold rolled, but it has an oil coating on the sheet.
That is what I was looking for. I am looking at it for finishing purposes and having the mill scale removed will make it much easier on my end.
I have some 3’ x 13’ x 1/4" panels I have to do a conversion coating (gun bluing) on. Not sure how I am going to pull it off yet but I am going to try.
Please wish me luck I will need it!
A guy that used to work for me now works at multi-million dollar high-end custom steel furniture company. And that’s all they use is that pickled and oiled. They don’t paint it or powder it, they use some sort of black, rub on finish and it’s very easy to apply without the mill scale and crap.
From the movie Taken:
If you see him and think of it ask him if he knows what that finish is, I am curious if its what I am going to use.
Thank you for the feed back!
