CorTen

Location type

  • » Indoor & Outdoor

CorTen steel reaches its natural rusty color in time following several oxidation steps, going from orange to dark brown. Because of its surface instability it can be considered a metal that is “alive”.  Under natural weather conditions it starts rusting until it reaches a saturation point.

We accelerate the oxidation process and finish our products with bee wax or a clear resin for a more finished look.  CorTen is used for outdoor environments but lately it has been chosen for  indoor environments. It is discouraged to use  this metal for kitchen tops or in bathroom environments.

Be aware that CorTen could stain the surface on which is directly placed.

Clean the metal if necessary with a soft dry cloth.
