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
