COR-TEN steels are highly resistant to corrosion in comparison to steels with low carbone and soft steel. These steels, which show 30% more of features of conventional steels, decreases thickness of steel and that leads reduction in weight of steel.
COR-TEN steels are with low alloy and high strength. These steels contain carbone less than %0.2 and Cu, CR, Ni, P, Si, Mn elements of alloy less than %3-5 in total.
They are suitable to use in manufacturing bridges, water pipes, facing works of buildings, agriculture machinery, railway carriages, oil-well, harbor constructions, petrochemistry equipments, boilers, chimney thanks to its resistant structure to corrosion in atmosphere.
