CORTEN also known as Weathering Steel is a high strength low alloy steel developed to be more resistant to atmospheric corrosion when compared to other steels.  If properly exposed to the weather it will allow surface rust to a point where the corrosion is halted or retarded creating a stable rust-like appearance.

ASTM A588 / A606-4             Tensile Strength (P.S.I) = 70,000       Yield Point (P.S.I) = 50,000
