WHAT’S THE CORTEN STEEL?

COR-TEN STEEL – S300J2WP

 

WHAT IS IT?

 

S300J2WP Steel or COR-TEN (known also as Weathering Steel) is a special Steel Alloy inclusive of copper, chromium and phosphorus. It forms a durable rust-like appearance when exposed to the weather for several months.

The „Weathering“ term is used because, due to the chemical composition of COR-TEN, resistance to atmospheric corrosion is higher compared to other types of steels.  COR-TEN forms a protective layer on its surface under the influence of the weather. This is not corrosion but simply an oxidation which has the same color of rust without being rust. Being particularly resistant to corrosion and to tensile strength COR-TEN is widely used for the construction of bridges, guard-rails, containers, posts for vineyards, windows and doors.

 

ADVANTAGES

 

– High structural resistance .

– Unique aesthetical characteristics:  brown color very closed to wood

– 10 times higher resistance to corrosion compared to the standard steels, even in critical application.

– Long life.

– Natural, ecologic, 100%  recyclable material

 

SURFACE FINISHING

 

The “Rust-looking” finish is the result of an oxidation process: actually this is a protection against corrosion.
