U. S. Steel and Precoat Metals Unveil Weathered Metal Series Steel Products

Architects, building designers and structural engineers looking to incorporate the rich, organic look of weathered metals in their work now have exciting new steel product options that will provide them with the distinctive, classic appearance they want without having to wait for time and the elements to do their work.  

In a joint project with Precoat Metals, United States Steel Corporation ("U. S. Steel") is pleased to announce the launch of its Weathered Metal Series™.  

In recent years, demand for weathered steels has grown, and during that time, U. S. Steel has been a leader in developing these products and bringing them to market.  In 2005, U. S. Steel developed COR-TEN AZP® Prepainted Steel Sheet as a superior product to COR-TEN® steel and other weathering steels for architectural roofing and siding applications.  Created by coil-coating GALVALUME® coated steel sheet substrate, COR-TEN AZP® is designed to look like COR-TEN® steel, providing builders with the color and texture of weathering steel, while maintaining the structural integrity of the thin-gauge steel and eliminating the wait time previously required for nature to alter the product's appearance.

The weathered metal offering has now been expanded to include weathered copper and weathered galvanized steel.  All three products (COR-TEN AZP®, COPPER-TEN™ and GALV-TEN™) are available in two distinct stages of aging - moderately weathered "Raw" and more heavily weathered "Robust".  As with the original COR-TEN AZP®, all of these new offerings incorporate cool pigment technology.
