Weathering steel are a series of low carbon steel with additional alloying elements mixed in carbon and iron atoms. These alloying elements make weather steel have better strength and corrosion resistance than typical low carbon steel grades. Therefore, weather steel is usually used in outdoor applications or in environments where ordinary steel is prone to rust.
As a low carbon steel, the carbon content of weather steel is usually less than 0.3% (by weight). This low carbon content allows it to maintain ductility and toughness. Weather steels also include other alloying elements that help to improve strength, but more importantly, to improve corrosion resistance. Many different alloying elements are used, but the three key elements of weather steel are nickel, copper and chromium.
The weathering steel grades that are hot are a606 weathering steel,a588 weathering steel,astm a242 steel,astm a588 steel,astm a588 weathering steel,astm a847 weathering steel,s355j2w steel,a606 corten steel,corten 10 steel and a847 weathering steel.Of caurse,we also have perforated weathering steel.We compress the weathering steel cost as much as possible .We can provide the lowest weathering steel price.

The packaging of our products (eg. weathered corrugated steel, weathering corrugated steel,corten steel columnl,hot rolled stainless steel plate) ensures that they will not be damaged during transport. For export purposes, the usual export packaging is done in wooden crates or crates. All hr sheet metal, plates and coils are marked with a logo (company mark), grade, size and batch number. On request, we can customise the marking on the product,such as spcc cold rolled steel.
Weather steel creates a rusty,such as weathering steel patina,dark corten steel, distinctive look that is perfect for those looking for a variety of different styles, both traditional and contemporary. Weatherboard can be used for roofing, siding and also to protect outbuildings and sheds.
Please note that as a weathered corrugated metal, weather resistant steel is not suitable for important load-bearing parts above 450 ℃.
Thanks to its high weathering of steel, it can be used without paint. Unpainted applications provide not only the economic advantage of reducing the cost of repainting, but also the aesthetic advantage associated with the calm color of protective rust.
Like ordinary steel, weather steel Plate can be painted. In addition, even if coating defects occur, weather steel Plate can inhibit the development of corrosion area and prolong the service life of coating, so as to reduce the cost of re coating.
Although trace alloying elements such as copper (Cu) and chromium (CR) are added to weathering steels Plate to ensure high weather resistance, the carbon content is reduced to welding corten to mild steel. Therefore, weathering steels Plate can be welded by manual, gas shielded or submerged arc welding.
weathering steels Plate has similar machinability to ordinary steel with the same strength
As a corten steel company,since the marking of weathering steel Plate , more than 4.8 million tons of this material have been produced.
The lacquerless application of weathering steel Plate not only provides economic advantages, but also shows excellent aesthetic characteristics. Because of this, rusted corten is used in a wide range of fields, such as architecture and monuments. weathering steel Plate can be applied without painting – bare state, so as to reduce the cost of repainting and other maintenance. However, some of our customers expressed their concerns in the first or second year, and then the protective layer of fine-grained rust is forming. In order to solve these concerns, we have developed a supplementary antirust stabilization treatment.
When weathering steel Plate is painted, the number of times necessary to repaint can be reduced. This advantage is considered to be due to the fact that even in the base metal, the corrosion progress is slow due to the defects of gasification film or the corrosion of pinholes, thus reducing the occurrence of blistering and peeling of paint film. By making full use of this advantage. weathering steel Plate is used in all areas where steel is used – from buildings to railway vehicles, marine containers, storage tanks, industrial machinery and bridges.
