A606 Weathering Steel

Bryer's Weathering Steel is produced per ASTM A606 - Type 4 requirements and commonly referred to by the trade name Cor-Ten .  The material is sought after for the beautiful rust colored patina that develops once the steel is exposed to moisture.  Similar to standard cold rolled steel, Weathering Steel has additional alloys including copper, nickle and chromium.  These alloys help the oxidized surface heal and set up a protective barrier to the steel substrate which extends the life of the material.

Weathering steel can be used in a myriad of application both on the exterior envelope as well as decorative accents on the interior.  Bryer roll forms Weathering Steel in multiple panel profiles and can also fabricate custom shingles and flat wall panels.  Available in thicknesses ranging from 22 gauge all the way to 1/2” structural plate.
