Weathering Steel plate
Weathering steel, best-known under the trademark COR-TEN steel and sometimes written without the hyphen as "Corten steel", is a group of steel alloys which were developed to eliminate the need for painting, and form a stable rust-like appearance if exposed to the weather for several years.
"Weathering" means that due to their chemical compositions, these steels exhibit increased resistance to atmospheric corrosion compared to other steels. This is because the steel forms a protective layer on its surface under the influence of the weather.
The corrosion retarding effect of the protective layer is produced by the particular distribution and concentration of alloying elements in it. The layer protecting the surface develops and regenerates continuously when subjected to the influence of the weather. In other words, the steel is allowed to rust in order to form the protective coating.
Weathering Steel, Corten Steel Application
Used in different weather. It has good anti rust protection and welding ability and is used in shipping container, support frame of outside building etc. Remarkably enhances the anti-corrosive performance of the structural element, lengthens the structural element service life, uses in manufacturing each kind of structural element which was used under the atmospheric environment and the caustic gas, the liquid environment.
