Weathering Steel, often referred to as Cor-ten or A606, is a unique material gaining popularity as of late for its distinctive rust patina. This natural yet stable protective coating acts as a defense against further corrosion. Weathering steel arrives unrusted and develops a rust-like appearance once exposed to the elements for a period of time.
Features + Benefits
Resists staining, rusting, and pitting
Strength to weight advantage. Tensile strengths of 75,000 to 125,000 psi allow the use of lighter gauges, resulting in cost savings.
Heat and corrosion resistant
Ease of fabrication. Stainless Steel can be cut, welded, formed, machined, and fabricated readily.
