Corten Steel Sheets & Panels

patinated corten sheet corten sheet diagram

Corten, or ASTM A606-4 Weathering Steel, is an atmospheric corrosion resistant steel that is available in both sheet and panel varieties. Corten steel panels and sheet products do not require painting. Instead of paint, the corten steel surface is revered for its reddish-brown, rust-like appearance that increases when exposed to atmospheric corrosion.

What is Corten Steel Sheet & Plate?

Ideal for outdoor structural projects, Corten steel utilizes a protective oxide coating that prevents atmospheric corrosion from environmental conditions. The oxidation film allows for enhanced corrosion resistance versus regular carbon steel, offering a low-maintenance option for a variety of construction projects and applications.

Corten Steel Sheet & Plate Advantages

Corten, also known as weathering steel, is a group of steel alloys developed to eliminate the need for painting. Instead, the surface forms a stable rust-like appearance when exposed to environmental elements. The rustic appearance (reddish-brown rust color) occurs over time when exposed to atmospheric corrosion.  Other benefits of corten steel panel and sheet products include:
  • Enhanced corrosion resistance
  • High tensile strength
  • Ideal for load-bearing structures
  • Reddish-brown appearance makes it aesthetically appealing
  • Can withstand high heat levels without corrosion
  • Minimal maintenance/future maintenance
  • Eliminates the need for initial and future paint maintenance
  • Eco-friendly/recyclable

Corten Steel Sheet & Plate Properties

Properties of ASTM A606 Type 4 steel include the following:
  • Machinable
  • Weldable (ideally to other weathering steel alloys)
  • Lighter than carbon steel
  • Ideal for high strength-to-weight ratio applications

Weathering Corten Steel Panel & Sheet Applications

Common uses for weathering sheet and plate include:
  • Sculptures
  • Building structures
  • Welded bridges
  • Roofing
  • Landscaping
  • Corrugated panels
