Corrosion Resistant Steel Plates Stockist and Suppliers
Csteel is a prominent stockist, suppliers and distributor of Corrosion Resistant Steel Plates
Weathering steel, best-known under the trademark Weathering Steel A steel and sometimes written without the hyphen as "Weathering Steel A* steel", is a group of steel alloys which were developed to obviate the need for painting, and form a stable rust-like appearance if exposed to the weather for several years. United States Steel Corporation (USS) holds the registered trademark on the name Weathering Steel A. Although USS sold its discrete plate business to International Steel Group (now Arcelor-Mittal) in 2003, it still sells Weathering Steel A branded material in strip-mill plate and sheet forms.
Conquest Steel & Alloys is a Supplier of ASTM A242 steel plates fall under the banner of ‘weathering Steel plates’, much-admired for their ability to display improved resistance to atmospheric corrosion compared to ordinary grade steel. These steel plates are also known as Weathering Steel A low alloy steels; their chemical composition is granting them high tensile strength.
The original Weathering Steel A received the standard designation ASTM A 242 TYPE-1("Weathering Steel A") from the ASTM International standards group. Newer ASTM grades are ASTM A 606 for thin sheet. All alloys are in common production and use. ASTM A242 is hot rolled products of structural steels in technical delivery conditions with improved atmospheric corrosion resistance. It was first used in buildings in 1958 because it has anti-corrosion properties, and was widely used for bridges, trains, cars, trucks, container, harbor construction, oil platforms and industrial facilities and so on. It has a very low base cost among wrought alloy steels in the same category. In addition, it has the lowest embodied energy and a very low tensile strength.
It is a copper chromium alloy steel – this alloy displays a greater level of resistance to atmospheric weathering when compared to other unalloyed steels. Its chemical composition promotes the early formation of an adhering protective layer of rust when exposed to the elements. The mechanical characteristics and the resistance to atmospheric corrosion form this steel, the best product for the fabrication of agricultural vans and railway wagons, structures of bridges, water pipes, fans, chimney, sand boilers. The natural finish does not normally require any form of maintenance such as painting, which makes the material a highly cost effective alternative to other structural steels. Mainly used for construction of tanks, containers, bridges, frame structures, vehicles, etc with the request of welded, bolted, etc.
The original Weathering Steel A received the standard designation ASTM A 242 TYPE-1("Weathering Steel A") from the ASTM International standards group. Newer ASTM grades are A 588 ("Weathering Steel A") and A 606 for thin sheet. All alloys are in common production and use.
JIS G 3125:2004: Japanese grade for weather resistant steel plates: Superior atmospheric corrosion resisting rolled steels This Standard specifies the rolled steel having high atmospheric corrosion resistance, to be used for vehicle, building, steel tower and other structure.
IRSM 41-97 Corrosion Resistance steel INDIAN grade for weather resistant steel plates: IRSM 41-97 standard of Indian railways specifically formed for wagon body due to it high resistance to corrosion, Major wagon builder being Rail Coach Factory.
