Starting out as a blue steel, as soon as Corten Steel is exposed to the elements it will naturally weather and develop a rich eye catching finish. This natural fixed coating of rust provides protection against further corrosion.
During the weathering process the Corten Steel produces carbon run off which can stain adjacent materials such as stone or concrete. To reduce this possible staining, all Corten Steel products have small feet, lifting the product and preventing direct contact with the flooring material. After the initial reactive period Corten Steel will cure and self-seal with little to no carbon run off.
Standard material thickness is 2mm and we offer a made to measure service as well as our wide range of sizes of boxes, cylinders and troughs.
