The reason that our GNEE are covered with a thick layer of rust is not just because it is a nice addition to a robust product; this special kind of steel is called ‘Corten steel’ and the layer of rust gives the Outdooroven the opportunity to protect itself against all types of weather. Corten steel, also known as COR-TEN steel or weathering steel, is a group of steel alloys which were developed to eliminate the need for painting and form a stable rust-like appearance, even after several years of exposure to weather influences. This new steel type was named COR-TEN because of the properties: COR (corrosion resistant) and TEN (tensile strength). Your GNEE is therefore able to protects itself against wind and rain, and further oxidation is prevented.
Products made out of Corten steel are delivered without a layer of rust. If the product is placed outside, it will start to form a layer of rust after a few weeks to months. No treatment is necessary before using it. Every product will form a different rust layer, depending on the surroundings.
Cleaning and maintenance
To prolong the life of your Outdooroven we recommend cleaning the steel with a sturdy brush as often as you can.
Make sure your product is situated in a place where it can quickly dry after rain.
