Weather resistant steel S355J2W
Weather resistant, CORTEN steel was developed in the USA in the 1930s. Complies with European standard EN10025-5.
– Chromium to increase corrosion resistance.
– Phosphorus, which promotes surface oxidation.
– Copper providing a specific color.
Structural Corten steel can be bought in Ukraine in the form of rolled metal, which is characterized by:
– Deformation resistance.
– Easy to handle in a variety of ways.
– High structural strength.
At the same time, the price of Corten steel is relatively affordable.
In addition, EN10025-5 stands out for its high weather resistance influences. This is due to the formation of an oxide film on the surface, the formation of which is provoked by the chemical composition of the material, under the influence of moisture. The resulting patina covers all the pores in the metal, preventing the penetration of oxygen into them. Therefore, the material does not require painting.
darker shades. To stop the color change on a particular shade, the designs can be coated with a colorless varnish.
Corten steel can be bought for the manufacture of building structures, sculptures, art objects, decorative elements, facade decoration, and so on.
