Sheets are supplied in the natural bright finish, though storage conditions may cause some rusting to occur which should not be a problem for an out door roof. They will age naturally.

Another application for rusted Corten steel is decorative door cladding. Working with the The Main Company we produced rusted kitchen cupboard doors for an exhibition. This involved covering timber door blanks with Corten steel on the face and sides.
Corten steel was formed in to shell using our CNC folding machinery, the corners being welded. Cleaned up and sharp edges removed the shell was rusted in our patina studio and subsequently lacquered in our spray shop. The next step was to bond the timber to the inside of the shell with structural grade adhesive.

Much of our rusted corten steel sheet and weathering steel sheet is aimed at indoor and outdoor designs, rust shades can be from dark orange to chestnut brown.
COR-TEN is the trademark of U.S. Steel. It is part of a group of steels called Weathering Steels. These steels have an increased resistance to corrosion. Rust forms a protective barrier to further corrosion, the colour of a fully developed patina is dark brown and the rust is tight to the surface.
Some pre-cut sheet sizes of Corten are available in our store
Corten Steel is steel alloyed with Copper, Chromium, Nickle and Phosphorous.
Outdoors rust patina forms on corten steel through cycles of wet and dry, environments which do not cycle will not achieve a good adhering patina. The rust patina actually forms a barrier to protect the steel from deep corrosion. Unlike normal mild steel which will continue to rust to the point of perforation.
