ASTM A588 is the proper ASTM number. "CORTEN" is the USS trade name for the product. Bethlehem called it weathering steel. I'm not sure how thin you can get thim material, however. Check with USS and Bethlehem directly. Another option to check: ASTM A242, which also has weathering characteristics like those you describe. Charlie Carter, AISC From: Lynn <lhoward(--nospam--at)silcom.com> To: seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org Subject: CORTEN steel Can anyone provide me with information on CORTEN steel;... you know, the stuff that forms a light rust appearance on the outside and is supposed to provide good resistance to further corroding. I would like the ASTM number and or suppliers of this steel. I am looking for sheet metal cladding specification, not structural wide flange type members. Thanks Lynn
