Commonly known as COR-TEN or Corten Steel. The name Corten is a trademark name held by United States Steel Corporation for their grade of A 242 weathering Steel. 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.

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.
