COR-TEN® is a well-known weathering steel brand for buildings and structures, and a favorite facade material among architects and designers. The combination of high-strength, aesthetic appearance, low maintenance and flexibility, make it an ideal choice for projects of all shapes and sizes.
COR-TEN® is a licensed brand and a part of the SSAB Weathering steel family.
COR-TEN® is high strength, low alloy weldable structural steel with exceptional weathering resistance. The chemical composition of the steel allows for the creation of a layer of rust that coats a building without altering the mechanical characteristics of the steel. This rust layer, not only protects architectural steel products against the elements, but also delivers a unique finish that stops most people in their tracks. What’s more, it’s also more environmentally-friendly than traditional steel.
Few things can compete with SSAB Weathering and COR-TEN® steels for an architect or artist that wants to create a building or sculpture with impact. A tower of rust in a city of glass and concrete or a field of green is a thing of beauty and contrast that will stand for decades, will require minimum upkeep, and will leave a lasting impression on all who see it.
