Atmospheric corrosion resistant plates and sheets
COR-TEN A is a strip mill product. The chemical composition of COR-TEN A has been designed to provide a relative resistance against atmospheric corrosion, in particular for urban environments. It can therefore be used even without painting; in this case a thin layer of stable oxides will be formed, thus preventing further corrosion inside.

1500 × 6000
2000 × 6000
COR-TEN A steel plates comply to the following standards: NF A 35‑502‑E36W, ASTM A242 and A588, EN 10155‑Fe510A1K1/DD2K1, S.E.W087, S335 POW.
Fields of application
The mechanical characteristics and the resistance against atmospheric corrosion make this steel the best product for the fabrication of agricultural vehicles and railway wagons, bridges, water pipes, fans, chimneys and boilers and outdoor sculptures.
