CORROSION / WEATHER RESISTANT STEEL PLATES

Scope:-

COR-TEN A applies to plates up to 12.5mm in thickness, COR-TEN B applies to plates up to 50mm in thickness.

Definition :-

Weathering means that due to their chemical compositions COR-TEN A and COR-TEN B steels, when utilized unprotected, exhibits increased resistance to atmospheric corrosion compared to unalloyed steels. This is because it forms a protective layer on its surface under the influence of the weather.

Applications:-

The steel is used for various types of welded, bolted and riveted constructions e.g. steel frame structures, bridges, tanks and containers, exhaust systems, vehicles and equipment constructions. Basic guidelines for the use of this steel in the unprotected condition are described in EN 10025-5 and DASt rule 007.

The notched-bar impact energy is determined on ISO-V longitudinal test specimens at a temperature of - 20°C as an average of three tests. For product thicknesses ≥10mm the average value is at least 27 J. For thicknesses between 10mm and 6mm, the minimum impact value is reduced proportionally to the specimen width (product thickness).No impact test is performed on products below 6mm in thickness.

Number of Tests:-
  • 1 tensile test
  • 1 test specimen per 40 t from each heat*)
  • Notched bar impact test
  • 1 set specimens per 40 t from each heat *)
  • (3 specimens) (at test temperature -20°C) as referenced in EN 10025-5
