Structural steel: PATINAX®

Weatherproof steel - patinax®

Weather resistant steel is distinguished by its high weather resistance.

Its alloying with copper and chromium ensure the formation of a firmly adhering protective layer of rust which concurrently makes for an attractive appearance. Architects value its application in buildings of all types in particular when in addition to questions of construction, aesthetic aspects also need to be considered.

Weather resistant steel offers a sensible alternative even without a protective coating in bridge construction, building facades and also in industrial applications. patinax® 355 is as unproblematic to process as other standard structural steel grades. patinax® 355P is supplied with an increased phosphorus content for improved weather resistance.

Thus it is suited to applications where improved weather resistance is necessary but processing properties limited.

Properties

  • Greater weather resistance than normal grades
  • Aesthetic appearance
  • Good processability
  • Minimum yield strength 50 ks

Construction

Modern architecture places high demands on aesthetics and function. As an innovative material, the high-grade steel made by thyssenkrupp Steel Europe ensures building solutions merging with the surroundings in an environmentally sound way due to their colored organic coatings.
