Is Surplus Steel Right for my Project?
If you are starting a project that requires steel or pipe, you’re probably searching for high quality products at the best price available. Along your search, you may have heard of surplus steel and pipe. Aren’t familiar with it? Surplus is a category of metal products that usually come from business closures, project changes, miscut or overstock pieces. The product isn’t damaged or defective – it’s extra material that is no longer needed. Oftentimes, surplus steel and pipe costs less, saving you 10-40%!
This may lead to you ask yourself: “Is surplus steel right for my project?”
Surplus, sometimes called secondary or Less-Than-Prime© (LTP©), provides many of the same benefits of new steel, but at a fraction of the original cost. Because, in most cases, the product isn’t damaged structurally - it is perfectly safe to use for your small or large-scale building or manufacturing projects. It may have minor defects or slight corrosion from being stored, but still has plenty of useable life and hundreds of different uses.
