Corten Steel is a special steel originally developed for bridge building and skyscraper construction due to its incredible strength. It develops a protective rust appearance on exposure to the weather, creating warm rich textures not always associated with metal.If this protective barrier is compromised, it will simply form a new skin to protect itself. Corten Steel is extremely durable and has a far higher resistance to atmospheric corrosion than other steels, making it is ideal for use in fire-pits, planters and water features. When you first receive your Corten Steel products they may arrive in an un-weathered or partly weathered or completely weathered condition. Once placed outside the weathering process will begin. This can take some time; Corten Steel has a reactive patina period of between 3 and 9 months depending on location and climate. The patina or rust acts as a protective barrier - it will not penetrate or compromise the structural integrity of the material. The colouration of each item will vary as the weathering process takes place, eventually producing a rusty brown patina.Stage 1 - Freshly manufactured Corten Steel. At this stage the dark oily residue coats the Corten Steel. Stage 2 - The oily residue is beginning to break down, as the Corten Steel begins to weather. Stage 3 & 4 - The "Run-Off" stage - This can take around 3-9 months depending on weather and positioning. Stage 5 & 6 - The final stages of the weathering process. Some "Run-Off" may still occur as the Corten Steels patina develops to a striking more consistent appearance.
