Corten steel also called Weather Resistant steel or Atmospheric Corrosion Resistant steel,
it is known as a low cost and highly effective material.
Corten steel is classed as being a “self -protecting “steel for its “patina “which results from
protective surface oxidation and develops during exposure to the atmosphere; The oxide layer
that gives the steel its distinctive appearance and enhances weather resistant capabilities
compared to standard steels, also the improved corrosion performance can lead to improved
Corten steels are typically used in Railway, bridges, rolling stock, shipping container, garden
building, and other structural applications.
