What is Corten Steel?
Corten Steel is a much a sought after material by architects, artists and designers for its beautiful natural and rustic appearance that can exhibit totally different in every setting.
Corten steel, known also as Cor-Ten or Weathering Steel is used in everything from outdoor sculptures to fully engineered buildings and machinery.
The science behind this apparently ‘rusty’ steel is as complicated as it is fascinating. The chemical composition of Corten steel, allows it to exhibit increased resistance to atmospheric corrosion compared to other steels. This is because the steel forms a protective layer on its surface under the influence of the weather.
The layer protecting the surface develops and regenerates continuously when subjected to the elements of the weather, in other words the steel is allowed to rust in a controlled way in order to form a protective layer upon itself.
This weathering process can take up to a year to fully form. During this time there may be some run-off which can stain nearby concrete or stone.
It is important to protect these neighbouring surfaces while the weathering process is happening, once the protective surface has fully formed, there will be no further risk of staining.
