CORTEN® STEEL SHEETS: STEEL RESISTANT TO ATMOSPHERIC CORROSION.
Our service centre is specialized in processing corten® steel sheets: this is a special steel used in particular in the construction sector.
Thanks to the alloys that contribute to the creation of a permanent superficial and self-regenerating protective layer in a brown color, corten® steel, in addition to excellent mechanical resistance, also adds high resistance to corrosion caused by exposure to atmospheric elements, up to 8 times greater than normal structural steel.
Corten® steel sheets do not require extra costs for galvanizing, and if painted the corten® steel sheets reduce maintenance costs to a minimum, because they consist of a high strength steel that self-protects from corrosion if scratched or chipped in the painted layer.
The name CORTEN® STEEL is derived from its main characteristics:
CORrosion resistance: high resistance to corrosion
TENsile strength: high mechanical resistance.
The most well-known brands of corten® steel are:
