Orrcon Steel’s O’Sullivan Beach Precision Mill is excited to announce they have successfully completed trials to manufacture GALVABOND® Commercial Pipe.

GALVABOND® Commercial Pipe offers an alternative to Hot Dipped Galvanised pipe in selected applications. There is a real bonus in being Australian made as it is high quality steel and shorter lead times to produce.

After analysing the tooling and roll sets at O’Sullivan Beach, Orrcon Steel’s Precision Mill team identified several sizes that could be produced using GALVABOND® coil sourced from parent company BlueScope. 

South Australian Orrcon Steel Sales Manager Simon Robinson said, “The mill team determined they could produce the most popular sizes including 20,25,32,40 and 50 NB pipe sizes in Extra Light.”

The trial was a great success and the O’Sullivan Beach Precision Mill are receiving multiple orders from the Orrcon distribution business.

The GALVABOND® Commercial Pipe is one of the most versatile steel products.

“Our GALVABOND® Commercial Pipe is rolled to length and made with 300 grade steel, whilst many imported products utilise 250-steel grade.

“With a circa four-week lead time for our O’Sullivan Beach mill to produce GALVABOND® Commercial Pipe, regular supply is guaranteed whereas imported products have up to a three-month lead time from order placement,” he said.

Please note that GALVABOND® Commercial Pipe is only available to southern Australian states including Victoria, South Australia and Southern New South Wales.
