ASTM A242 Type 1 Corten Steel Steel Plate & Sheet

ASTM A242 Type 1

Corten Steel Tube stands out as a prominent supplier and exporter of weathering steel, specifically ASTM A242 steel plates. Designed as a low alloy steel with high strength, ASTM A242 adheres to stringent specifications. Its notable feature is its commendable atmospheric corrosion resistance, surpassing ASTM A36 steel plate and ASTM A572 Grade 50 in certain applications. This steel type can be used in its natural, unpainted state, allowing corrosion to naturally halt and form a protective layer.

Within the ASTM A242 specification, there are two grades: Type 1 and Type 2. Type 1 is the more widely utilized structural steel grade, recognized for its versatile applications. Typically produced in a hot-rolled state, ASTM A242 Type 1 is well-suited for various processes, including cutting, forming, drilling, machining, and grinding. This flexibility makes it a preferred choice for applications where both strength and corrosion resistance are crucial.

The thickness range of ASTM A242 Corten Steel varies from 2 to 460 mm, and its length spans from 6000 mm to 12000 mm. It encompasses diverse specifications such as ASME, ASTM, and others. Available in various finishes including hot-rolled plates, cold-rolled sheets, and those met with plastic coatings, it offers versatility in meeting different application requirements.

The hardness options for this corten steel plate are quarter-hard, soft, half-hard, spring-hard, hard, and more. Its informal cold-forming ability makes it easy to handle, providing convenience in various fabrication processes. Customization is a key feature, allowing clients to obtain this corten plate in tailor-made sizes and lengths, aligning with their specific project needs.

ASTM A242 Corten Steel TYPE 2 Plates undergo rigorous testing, including radiography, flaring, flattening, and third-party inspections, ensuring a high-quality product. To protect it from rust and damages during transportation, these plates are thoughtfully packed in wooden crates, guaranteeing their integrity upon arrival at their destination. The excellent resistance to rust, combined with the option for personalized specifications, makes this corten steel a reliable choice for diverse applications.
