Brombal Cor-Ten

About Cor-Ten

Cor-Ten steel has a unique, distinctive appearance. The intense richness of its finish bestows a warm, natural, yet at the same time extremely elegant look. Its distinctive appearance is a result of an oxidation process which forms a protective patina that remains unchanged over the years.

Cor-Ten steel is a high tensile strength, corrosion resistant, steel alloy, containing copper, chromium and phosphorus. The name (Cor-Ten) reflects the special properties of this allow: corrosion resistance (Cor) and high tensile strength (Ten). These properties make Cor-Ten steel particularly suitable for use in any environment.

The Material

CorTen steel is a high tensile strength, corrosion resistant steel alloy which contains copper, chromium and phosphorous. The name (Cor-Ten) reflects the special properties of this alloy: corrosion resistance (Cor) and high tensile strength (Ten). These properties make CorTen steel particularly suitable for use in any environment

Transformation Process

The large rolls of CorTen steel are cut to the required width and rolled to the specific profile section. Upon exposure to air, the patina process begins which creates a protective layer of rust over the surface. Left untreated, the rust will create an ever changing appearance. A surface wax treatment can be applied which will stop the continued rusting and will provide a protective barrier against the elements
