corten a weathering steel plate panel
Thickness:6-400 mm. Width:1600-4200 mm. Length:4000-15000mm. COR-TEN has served as weathering steel (atmospheric corrosion- resistant steel). Corten steel plate has successfully overcome rust, steels most weakest. When exposed to the atmosphere without painting, corten steel begins to rust in the same way as ordinary steel.
Corten steel, also called Cor-Ten steel, is a weathering steel that resists corrosion but is not rust-proof. This steel alloy is widely used in landscaping and other outdoor applications because it forms a protective layer of rust after approximately six months of exposure to moisture and oxygen. What is Corten Weathering Steel?Weathering steel, best-known under the trademark COR-TEN® steel, is a group of steel alloys which were developed to obviate the need for painting, and form a stable rust-like appearance if exposed to the weather for several years. Weathering steel has increased resistance to atmospheric corrosion when compared to other steels.
A588 Corten Steel Plate aka Weathering Steel plate is a high strength steel that offers all the advantages of A572-50 but with excellent corrosion resistance to the elements. The elevated levels of copper in A588 Corten plate produces a self healing characteristic that
