Dent Steel is the UK’s leading stockholder of large area quality steel plates and shipbuilding sections and offer specialist services including shot blasting, painting and profiling.
Dent Steel Services (Yorkshire) Ltd specialises in the stocking, supply, processing, shot-blasting and painting of steel for the ship building and ship repairing industries worldwide, both commercial and military. We are also major suppliers to the construction, fabrication, oil and offshore industries.
We have made considerable investment in the installation of a state of the art profiling machine to go alongside our fully automated shot-blasting and painting machine. This specialist machine has the capability of shot-blasting steel to the highest quality surface cleanliness, and painting with all weldable primers (including water based) to the highest tolerance dry film thickness.
