Corten Steel

Corten steel, also known as weathering steel, is a group of steel alloys that are designed to develop a rust-like appearance after exposure to weather over time. This unique characteristic is due to the presence of alloying elements such as copper, chromium, and nickel, which allow the steel to form a stable, protective patina when exposed to the elements. This patina not only gives corten steel its distinctive appearance but also acts as a protective layer that prevents further corrosion.

Corten steel is particularly favoured in the creation of outdoor sculptures and architectural elements. These structures, crafted with precision and artistic vision, benefit from corten steel's robust and durable nature. The steel's natural weathering process ensures that the sculptures maintain their structural integrity while developing a unique and evolving visual appeal over time. Furthermore, corten steel provides a modern, industrial aesthetic that enhances any outdoor or urban setting, making it a popular choice for designers and architects.

The weathering characteristic of corten steel makes it ideal for various outdoor applications, including building facades, bridges, and garden planters. In garden settings, corten steel planters offer a striking contrast to the greenery, providing a contemporary look that ages gracefully. The steel's resilience to the elements ensures that these planters will last for many years, adding both beauty and functionality to any landscape design.
