A871Type2Gr60 Weather Resistant Steel Description
A871Type2Gr60 is a corrosion resistant steel, also can be called weathering resistant steel or atmosphere corrosion resistant steel. A871Type2Gr60 also is a high strength low alloy steel, so it is suitable for a lot of applications exposed the weather condition. With its good property , A871Type2Gr60 is suitable for welded bridges and other structures with the longer life cycle due to its corrosion resistant properties.

Why Choosing A871Type2Gr60 Weather Resistant Steel
A871Type2Gr60 steel is becoming more popular by roll formed product end-users. Its unique look and naturally oxidizing finish make it especially desirable for many architectural projects. A871Type2Gr60 has increased resistance to atmospheric corrosion when compared to other steels. A871Type2Gr60 resists the corrosive effects of rain, snow, ice, fog, and other meteorological conditions by forming a coating of dark brown oxidation over the metal, which inhibits deeper penetration and save the cost for painting or rust-prevention maintenance.

Theory of A871Type2Gr60 Weather Resistant Steel Stop rusting
A871Type2Gr60 Steel never completely stops rusting. The weathering process occurs after the panel come out. It eventually decreases and from that point on the finish acts as a protective coating for the base metal.

This protective coating essentially stops the corrosion. Laboratory analysis of the rust have shown that the alloying elements in the steel, such as copper, chromium, and nickel produced insoluble compounds that clogged the pores at the rust and steel interface, thereby ending the regeneration.

Application of A871Type2Gr60
ASTM A871Type2Gr60 is mainly used for welded, bolted and riveted constructions e.g. steel frame structures, bridges, tanks and containers, exhaust systems, vehicles and equipment constructions.
