As the top steel stockist in China,Xinsteel industrial also keeps corten steel materials for customers’ urgent demands,such as corten steel plate,corten steel pipe,corten hollow section.

What are specifications for corten steel plate ?

COR-TEN Brand from SSAB,COR-TEN register steel is produced by SSAB under a license from US STEEL CORPORATION.The main steel grades includes CORTEN A steel plate,CORTEN B steel plate.


EN 10025-5 specification from European standard which is for structural steels with improved atmosoheric corrosion resistance.The main steel grades are S355J0WP steel plate,S355J2WP steel plate,S355J0W steel plate,S355J2W steel plate,S355K2W steel plate,S235J0W steel plate,S235J2W steel plate.

A 588/A 588M specification from American ASTM standard which is equal to SA 588/SA 588M specification from ASME standard.This specification covers high strength low alloy structural steel plates,shapes with atmospheric corrosion resistance in most environments,these A588 steels intended primarily for use in welded bridges and buildings where savings in weight or added durability are important.By adding different copper and chromium,A588 steels includes A588 Grade A steel plate,A588 Grade B steel plate,A588 Grade C steel plate and A588 Grade K steel plate.

GB/T 4171 specification from Chinese standard,superior atmospheric corrosion resisting strucutural steels,mainly used for vehicles,buildings,pylons,containers.By adding alloy elements Cu,P,Cr,and then making an rusty protection layer on the surface of carbon steels.The main steel grades are 09CuPCrNi-A steel plate,09CuPCrNi-B steel plate and 09CuP steel plate,and in new version GB/T 4171-2008,Q235NH steel plate,Q355NH steel plate,Q415NH steel plate,Q460NH steel plate,Q500NH steel plate,Q550NH steel plate,Q265GNH steel plate and Q310GNH steel plate.

JIS G3125 specification from Japanese standard,there are cold rolled type steel grade SPA-C steel plate and hot rolled type steel grade SPA-H steel plate.Tensile strength of SPA-H steel plate above 490 mpa and yield strength above 355 mpa.Tensile strength of SPA-C steel plate above 450 mpa and yield strength above 315 mpa.


The above corten steel plate owns a better corrosion resistance property than common carbon steel plate,however the price would be higher.By done impact testing at low temperature,some corten steel plates also can be used in low temperature environments.
