Corten

Corten Steel

A group of steel alloys which were developed to eliminate the need for painting, and form a stable rust-like appearance. The corrosion process usually takes about 18-36 months.

The anticorrosive properties of weather resistant steel are better than those of other structural steels.

The material is economical, long-lasting and fully recyclable.

The material is self-protecting, the rust layer on the surface becomes a tight oxide layer that slows down the progress of corrosion.

The use of un-coated weather resistant steel in steel structures saves surface treatment costs.

Corten Steel reaches a stable oxidation point where further oxidation may occur but does not effect the quality of the steel.

Weathers to a natural brown colour which darkens gradually.
