We can produce a rust patina quickly by speeding up the natural rusting patina, it takes just a few days, whereas in nature this can take 12 months.
COR-TEN is the trademark of U.S. Steel. It is one of a group of steels called Weathering Steels. These steels have an increased resistance to corrosion. The rust forms a protective barrier to further corrosion. The colour of a fully developed patina is dark brown and the rust is tight to surface
Outdoors the patina rust forms through cycles of wet and dry, environments which do not cycle will not achieve a good adhering patina.
Our pre-rusted product, aimed at the interior design market, is not as dark as it would be in nature though we are working on this.
