What is COR-TEN Steel?

In general COR-TEN steel is known particularly for its advanced “weathering” characteristics. Similar to a bronze/brass patina, COR-TEN steel also protects itself by developing a defensive layer or “skin” that possesses the ability to regenerate once damaged. With that said, the COR-TEN steel type was primarily developed to eliminate any need for paint or additional finish which consequently reduces or eliminates reoccurring maintenance costs. Instead the finish of COR-TEN steel is extremely rustic, urban and even rough to the touch as a result of the dark protective build up on the surface; an attribute more and more customers are finding overwhelmingly desirable. The rustic appeal and corrosion-retarding attributes of COR-TEN steel is a direct result of its unmatched chemical composition consisting of various alloying elements.
