Arcorox® weathering steel for structures
Weathering steel grade for sustainable, decorative and costefficient structures with uncoated steel sections
Arcorox® structural shapes belong to a family of atmospheric corrosion resistant, low alloy steels for sustainable applications with focus on long service life with low maintenance costs.
By initially forming a natural, tightly adherent, protective oxide layer (patina), it strongly reduces further oxidation and thus supersedes the application of any corrosion protection system.
Therefore, along with aesthetic possibilities, Arcorox® provides durable construction even in the absence of initial painting, which enables savings thanks to:
• Reduced construction cost along with construction time;
• Reduced cost of maintenance as well as time of maintenance operation;
• No environmental impact due to absence of maintenance operations and residue.
Esthetically Arcorox uniquely suits to each building: Appearance, texture and maturity of the patina depending on time, degree of exposure and atmospheric environment.
