Weather conditions during transit can often cause signs of rust to appear on the corners, welds, and edges of your steel. By tarping the material and protecting it from exposure, this can be minimized. Although it is not detrimental to the steel, you can restore the appearance by applying a primer over the factory shop coat.
Here’s what you need to know.
When the edges, welds, and corners start to show signs of rust, it is most likely only a stain. There has been no damage done or any weakening of the member. You don’t need to be concerned with structural problems. However, to refresh the appearance of the steel, a primer can be used to cover the material to give it a consistent appearance.
