Hollow Carrier

Since the late 1940s, the perforating industry has utilized cold-drawn tubing to fulfill the perforation-gun demand. In the early 1990s, Continental saw an opportunity for change. Through many years of testing and engineering, we've developed a proprietary steel grade, allowing for change across the market. The perforating-industry standard has become our special hot-finished, seamless alternative with A450 cold-drawn tolerances and sulfur guarantees below 0.003.

Continental Alloys & Services is committed to supplying the best product to the best-qualified service companies in the market. We continue to work with globally recognized and proven mills to further develop our steel to meet the evolving needs and expectations of the perforating world.
