#9 – I’VE HEARD OF NON-WEATHERED CORTEN. WHAT IS THAT?
Good question! At first that doesn’t seem to make much sense, however non-weathered Corten is a real thing. In its pre-patinated state, weathered steel has a bluish-black hue to it which can be desirable based on its application. Sealing the panel will prevent any corrosion and ensure it maintains its original dark color.
#10 – WHAT ABOUT LONG TERM MAINTENANCE?
Virtually there isn’t any. The protective layer does all the work, therefore sealing or conditioning is unnecessary. If damage does occur to the outer layer, and it flakes off or is removed, another protective layer will form in its place.
