General

This name is commonly used in Australia to refer to Weathering Steels and the many forms of weathering steels that are imported under the name Corten while not being sourced from the US. Australia does manufacture weathering steels - BlueScope Steel manufactures REDCOR® (formerly Lyten) WR350 grade steels.

Edcon Steel Tips

Care should be taken with the placement of this product as the rusty surface will stain surrounding surfaces.

Colour retention across welds can be achieved by appropriate electrode selection. Welds may be susceptible to hot cracking

Weathering steels are not recommended without further protection for buried or submerged situations or for applications exposed to concentrated industrial fumes or severe marine conditions

Limited sizes and thicknesses are available in Australia, so client should research availability prior to finalise designs.

Surface Preparation and Coatings

 

This product is not normally coated.  The finish and appearance of an uncoated metal will depend on a variety of factors like atmosphere and contaminants the metal is exposed to, as well as variations in the chemistry of the base metal.    These factors will be outside of the control of the manufacturer.
