Corten® planters provide warm rich textures not always associated with metal. Beautiful earthy hues complement any environment. Initially Corten® material was developed for bridge and skyscraper construction where a high tensile strength material was necessary with little or no maintenance.
The patina or rust acts as a protective barrier not penetrating or compromising the structural integrity of the material. Corten® Steel has a reactive patina period from 3 to 9 months depending on location and climate. Corten® steel produces carbon run off or staining to adjacent materials like stone and concrete. After the initial reactive period Corten® steel will cure and self seal with very little to no carbon runoff.
Please be aware that Corten products do not come pre-weathered.
