MetalTech presents Cor-ten Weathering Steel, this product oxidizes naturally over time, giving it an orange-brown color and a rough and granular texture. It has a very high tensile strength, and in spite of its rusted appearance it is actually more resistant to damaging corrosion than standard forms of carbon steel. Cor-ten is an alloy that through the chemical interaction of weather and steel, prevents rust from penetrating the surface and creating rust holes. The rust actually forms a shield over the steel and as a result, this material is highly resistant to exposure-related corrosion once the initial oxidation process reaches saturation levels.
Weathering steel has become extremely popular in architectural applications for both residential and commercial projects. It’s used for both siding and roofing materials in corrugated, standing seam and plate cladding systems.
