Composition of Corten Steel
As a low carbon steel, corten steel usually has less than 0.3% carbon by weight. This small amount of carbon keeps it tough and tough. Weatherproof steel also includes other alloying elements, which help to improve strength, but more importantly, corrosion resistance. Many different alloying elements are used, but the three key elements in weathering steel are nickel, copper and chromium.
Classification of Corten Steel
Corten steel is a series of low carbon alloy steel, which is composed of many brands. Certain grades are proprietary, such as COR-TEN A or COR-TEN B.Patinax weathering steels, which are another group of proprietary grades. All these proprietary levels are similar to ASTM classifications A 242 and A 588.

Corten steel is a kind of alloy steel, which can form a relatively dense rust layer on the surface after exposure for several years, so it does not need to be protected by paint. Different stainless steels can be completely rust-free. Corten steels only have surface oxidation and do not penetrate into the interior. They have corrosion protection characteristics like copper or aluminium.
Corten steel is a kind of low carbon steel, which contains other alloying elements mixed with carbon and iron atoms. Compared with typical low carbon steel grades, these alloying elements make weathering steel have better strength and corrosion resistance. Therefore, corten steel is usually used in outdoor applications or in environments where ordinary steel is prone to rust.
