Constructing a corten timeline The American Society for Testing and Materials first began conducting tests to clarify the benefits of incorporating a low percentage of copper and phosphorous into steel in 1916. Building on this research, United States Steel began testing its own steel and alloy composites in 1929 and in 1933 it patented Cor-Ten A (subsequently joined by Cor-Ten B). Corten products took their name from an abbreviation of two of their main properties – corrosion resistance and tensile strength. These benefits, in addition to their relatively cheap pricing, originally saw the materials used in a variety of industrial applications such as rail carts in collieries. Eero Saarinen is often credited as the first designer to make use of weathered steel within an architectural context. In shaping the headquarters for John Deere, an Illinois based farming equipment manufacturer, Saarinen wanted to create a building which reflected the rugged, honest nature of the men who’d formed the company. His solution was a modernist design, blending glass with a corten steel frame which would develop a “deep hue, similar to that of the oak trees” which surrounded it. Since then, corten steel has been used in an increasingly wide variety of applications, from shipping containers and bridges to garden furniture and iconic sculptural pieces such as the Antony Gormley’s Angel of the North. The material can be incorporated within a structure in a number of ways, but one of the simplest and most popular remains its use as a rainscreen facade. Rust-ic facades Corten rainscreen facades are available in a wide range of sizes and styles. Corten steel is non-combustible and has excellent tensile strength – allowing them to be fitted in long lengths. The panels work particularly well with secret fixings which maintain a clean aesthetic and maximise their visual impact. When specifying corten facades it is important to consider the potential
