Tube drilling for all varieties of steel tubing

Steel tubes are some of the most versatile objects on the planet and have the potential to be shaped into vastly different designs. What we do is fashion a tube that matches up with your precise specifications by using methods such as tube drilling and bending. Whatever your request is, we assure you that it shall be met.

If we think about constructing a building of any kind, we need to consider several key aspects. One main factor to contemplate on is what variety of tubing materials are most appropriate for the water supply. Every pipe has its pros and cons but not every kind can be used, so we have to be certain that the one we select is adequate for the task. Some major characteristics that determine what type of material is utilised include both the quality of water and that of the substance’s overall strength.

Stainless steel pipes in particular are designed for exterior installations, particularly for laying pipelines and plumbing systems. Since it has no detrimental impact on the water quality, stainless steel pipes are used in hot and cold domestic water supplies and with the heating. It might have a big price tag compared to some other materials, but the cost is well worth the investment.

Since they are susceptible to corrosion, especially when water is involved, steel pipes are typically coated with zinc to protect them. Zinc is a metal that has a more active personality about it since it possesses the ability to oxidise at a fast pace, resulting in the protection from corrosion. Stainless steel is better though because it is a different alloy rather than a coating. This means you don’t need to worry about corrosion occurring if the surface is scratched or worn.

At Multiform Tubes we alter the shape and finish of a tube using tube drilling, as well as many other approaches, to produce something that falls in line with your requirements. We have experience of working with various materials including the aforementioned stainless steel. We understand the challenges it presents, particularly in terms of hardness. Luckily we have the skills and experience to overcome them.

If you have any questions that you’d like us to answer, we’d be more than happy to help.
