Almetyevsk Pipe Mill Adds Zinc-Plated Tubulars to Its Product Offering

The Almetyevsk Pipe Mill (a United Metallurgical Company (AO OMK, Moscow) subsidiary) has acquired capability for a new product: zinc-plated longitudinally electrically welded pipes.

The facility is ready to offer its customers round tubulars with ODs ranging from 15 to 57 mm as well as shaped pipes 11 x 15 and 60 x 40 mm. Zinc plating assures product longevity and resistance to corrosion. These tubulars have many applications in gas supply networks and construction as well as structural metal and for the purposes of outdoor advertising, heating and road signage.
The project was completed without any additional equipment purchases using solely the facility's existing capabilities.

"This new capability to make durable and corrosion-resistant tubulars is a yet another step by the Almetyevsk Pipe Mill to meet the demand in the tubulars market. Thanks to this additional product offering, we have made ourselves ready to expand collaboration into a new segment", noted Almetyevsk Pipe Mill Managing Director Artur Pleshkov.
