Our exclusive range of DuraGal coatings provide light, durable corrosion protection and are easy and safe to work with.
Austube Mills' range of lightly oiled products are a lightly oiled coating to prevent short term corrosion, specifically during transport between the mill and distribution centre.
DuraGalUltra is a coating applied exclusively to our Profiles range of products and offers double the barrier against corrosion but still demonstrates the same processing capability end-users have grown to trust.
The DuraGalClear surfaces are prepared with a non-chromate passivation treatment which is compatible with standard pre-treatments and subsequent powder coating.
DuraPrimedTM primer paint for tubular steel products has been developed specifically to save you time and money without compromising quality. It’s unique anti-spatter formula reduces clean-up time dramatically; any spatter caused during the welding process is simply wiped off.
DuraGalPlus is a smooth coating of zinc applied to both sides of Austube Mills steel products for superior protection.
Austube Mills offers a unique dual grade section known as C450PLUS.
Available in RHS, SHS and Silo Tube, C450PLUS complies with the requirements of both the commonly specified lower strength 350 grade and the structurally efficient higher strength 450 grade, providing a lower cost product to the specifier and end-user.
C450PLUS products comply with the requirements of two AS/NZS 1163 steel grades – The higher Grade C350L0 elongation requirements and the higher C450L0 requirements for both yield and tensile strength. Being fully compliant with AS/NZS 1163, C450PLUS products can be readily processed to Australian/New Zealand Standards and suit general, mechanical and structural fabrication processes, including welding and galvanizing.
Austube Mills Lintels have been designed to provide long lasting support over windows and doors. In brickwork, the bricks, mortar and lintel combine to provide exceptional strength and load-carrying capacity. Given the importance of this load-bearing ability of a Lintel as a structural building component - strength and corrosion performance are key. Our DuraGalUltra zinc aluminium coated Lintels have a 250g/m2 minimum average coating mass. At three times the performance of regular zinc coatings, this equates to an equivalent service life expectancy of a 750g/m2 zinc coating.
Available in Angles, Channels and Flats, the Austube Mills range of Profile sections feature the innovative DuraGalUltra in-line, hot-dip zinc aluminium surface protection coating.
DuraGalUltra provides a surface finish that is smooth, clean, free from oil, mill scale, rust and dirt. This makes the steel product ready to use, with no need to spend time and money on shot blasting, wire brush cleaning or priming after fabrication.
Tubular or Hollow Structural Section (HSS) is amongst the most versatile and efficient of materials for modern day construction and mechanical applications. Many of our most resilient and impressive structures in the world have been constructed using HSS.
At Austube Mills, we have been producing HSS for more than 70 years.
Our range includes Circular Hollow Sections (CHS), Rectangular Hollow Sections (RHS) and Square Hollow Sections (SHS).
The transport industry affects nearly every Australian. Australia relies heavily on road transport to move people and goods from one place to another throughout the country.
From broad acre cropping to horticultural production, livestock production and land use management, Australian farmers are amongst the most innovative and productive in the world. We have some 405 million hectares of land used for agriculture, carrying a combined total of over 100 million head of dairy cattle, beef cattle, sheep and pigs and producing around 30 million tonnes of wheat per year.
The metal and mining industry includes businesses engaged in exploring for metallic minerals, developing mines, and extraction of raw materials. The extractive industry consists of operations that remove metals, mineral and aggregates from the earth such as mining, dredging and quarrying.
The manufacturing sector includes some of the world’s most complex and diverse organisations. Balancing production of goods with the need for warehousing, transport logistics, distribution and sales is a constant challenge.
Construction has a major influence on every Australian, as it provides the homes in which we live, the places in which most of us work and play, our schools and hospitals, and infrastructure such as roads, water and electricity supply, and telecommunications – all essential for our day-to-day living.
