English term or phrase: distressed, flat-rolled steel
I cannot find a translation for "distressed" in this context - not Ernst, not Eurodicautom

Also: slab steel

gealterter? Flachstahl
Explanation:
flat rolled steel ist auf jeden Fall Flachstahl. Das ist der Oberbegriff für Bänder und Bleche.

bei "distressed" bin ich mir nicht sicher, es könnte "gealtert" heißen. "Altern" ist eine thermische Behandlung von Stahl. Ich weiß aber nicht, wie es auf englisch heißt. Aber wie schon jemand angemerkt hat, gibt es ja bei Holz eine ähnliche Bedeutung von "distressed".

Explanation:
I can't find the dictionary to prove it but I saw it the other day: 'distress'='beschädigt', in this context 'second quality'

Stahlplatte


Explanation:
slab-(Metall)=Platte according to Muret-Sanders--therefore,
Stahlplatte
Distressed steel is rusted and looks old, may have stress cracks, be recycled or not in comparison to it: distressed wood--is wood also made to look old.
Therefore, I would use a similar term for distressed steel as I wood for distressed wood. You'll find more on the internet searching google on distressed wood: http://www.sampleservice.com/msamplecataloge/distressedwood....
Also, you'll find German pages, when you look under Arten von Stahl etc. http://home.t-online.de/home/c.wilcke/bibliothek/index.htm
This site shows you "veralteter Stahl"--there is such a thing, I just
wanted to reconfirm it. Here is another list for "Stahlsorten:"http://www.georgsmarienhuette-gmbh.de/gmhs/liefer/stahlsorte...
and here you will find the rest:http://www.google.com/search?q=Stahlsorten&hl=en&lr=&safe=of...

You can look at distressed steel here:http://www.brucegray.com/htmlfolder/html_subpages/distable.h...

Hope this helps. Unfortunately, I did not find distressed steel
in my dictionaries either.
