DIVERSACLAD – Corten

Perfect patina

COR-TEN steel has become increasingly popular with sculptors and as an architectural feature. When used correctly it blends and complements its natural surroundings, shades of red, brown and orange become more texturally interesting as rain and sun exposure adds runs and lines, with deeper or lighter tones to the rust effect.

High resistance to corrosion

Weathering steel, best-known under the trademark COR-TEN steel or Xlerplate®, exhibits superior corrosion resistance over regular carbon steel as a result of the development of a protective oxide film on the surface that provides a unique rustic appearance. The layer protecting the surface develops and regenerates continuously when subjected to the influence of the weather.  Thus Corten needs not to be treated in any way prior to installation for longevity.

In contemporary architecture Corten steel can lend itself to all kinds of designs, perfect for both urban and rural contexts. Its industrial appearance means Corten will continue to be found in increasing numbers who want distinctive features and facades on their projects.
