WEATHERING STEEL

A Unique Steel Accent for Commercial & Architectural Applications

Weathering Steel is a high-strength, low-alloy steel with improved atmospheric corrosion resistance. With Weathering Steel, the specific alloying elements in the steel produce a stable rust layer that adheres to the base metal and is much less porous, producing a better resistance to corrosion. The rust ‘patina’ develops under conditions of alternate wetting and drying to produce a protective barrier that impedes further access of oxygen, moisture, and pollutants, providing a unique aesthetic to the steel structure.

End-use applications well suited for Weathering Steel include wall panel applications, sculptures, and other architectural accents. Indoor applications can be sealed with a protective coating to prevent rub-off.

Product Cautions


Weathering Steel is not rustproof in itself and is sensitive to humid subtropical climates and environments laden with sea salt. Normal surface weathering can also lead to rust stains on nearby surfaces, also known as “bleeding” or “runoff”. This can be prevented with proper installation and protective coatings for interior applications.
