Welcome to Cougartron

You understand industrial stainless steel.

So you know that cleaning and polishing are crucial. They allow the craftsmanship to shine and they promote the longevity and performance of the steel itself.. But the cleaning and polishing of stainless-steel welds and surfaces has always been tedious, time-consuming and potentially dangerous – even with newer weld cleaning devices.

That’s why we began developing the Cougartron ProPlus Weld Cleaner in 2012: It’s significantly faster, easier and safer at maintaining stainless steel – all in a remarkably compact and ergonomic form-factor – barely 32 cm tall and 7 kilos.

Cougartron was founded to meet the need for superior stainless steel maintenance products worldwide. We are dedicated to innovation, quality, safety and the highest standards of customer service always.
