Cor-TEN (or Corten for short) is the trademark name for the type of Steel, also known as weatherproof or weatherproof steel. The COR relates to corrosive resistance, while the TEN relates to high tensile strength.
Corten steel is a type of metal that develops a thin layer of rust under the influence of the weather. The rust layer gives the product a beautiful rust brown color and also protects against further rusting. Initially, the material rusts in the same way as ordinary steel, but after a few months the rust crystallizes and adheres to the steel as a protective layer. The formed patina layer ensures that the oxidation stops.
At the start of the rust process, the Corten steel can release rust on your terrace. We therefore recommend that you do not place the products on a light-colored surface in the initial phase. If the oxidation process has been completed (maximum 1.5 years), you can place the product anywhere. If there is rust deposition, this can possibly be removed by means of a suitable rust remover. The success depends above all on the agent used and the frequency and quality of cleaning.
Corten steel, unlike other steels, does not require post-treatment. It should not be painted as protection against corrosion. Thus, no toxic substances are released during application, and there will be no paint waste products during maintenance or recycling.
Custom work has a delivery time of at least 6 weeks.
Corten steel is very durable and environmentally friendly. The rusting process causes a protective layer to form on the Corten steel. The product therefore requires no further maintenance. Oiling or dyeing is not necessary.
If you do not want to wait until the product has its rust color? Then there are ways to speed up the process! Mix some salt with water and spray it with a plant sprayer. Mixing natural vinegar with water also helps speed up the rusting process.
Corten steel is also used as a material in bridge construction or Shipbuilding and has a very long service life. In addition, Corten steel is a pure type of steel without additional [chemical] layers of protection. This means that it can be melted down again and can therefore be reused.
Corten steel is a beautiful and extremely strong material that is made of iron to which copper, phosphorus, Silicon, nickel and chromium have been added. Corten Steel owes its name to its unique properties. For example, COR means corrosion resistant, or corrosion resistant.
Place the planter on a flat solid surface. The bottom of the planter provided a layer of pebbles 35 mm grading. Do not use an overflow pipe, because no water should remain in the container. Over this, a water-permeable anti-root cloth. Lay the cloth at the edges at least 10 cm
up for an ideal operation. On this soil that is suitable for the chosen planting. The Earth in the container should never be tamped hard
this can cause damage to the bin.
