The Corten Steel from Idealist Corten Eco is a beautiful, low maintenance outdoor planter. The steel is designed to "weather" or "age" to give a coppery colour that will improve with time. This planter comes already weathered, it will naturally weather and develop a rich eye-catching finish.
This natural fixed coating of rust provides protection against further corrosion. After the initial reactive period, Corten Steel will cure and self-seal with little to no carbon runoff.
During the weathering process, the Corten Steel produces carbon runoff which can stain adjacent materials such as stone or concrete. Please note this product will start its dense chemical composition once received, at any point and throughout the weathering process.
