CorTen derives its name from its properties: COR (corrosion resistant) and TEN (tensile strength). CorTen is a steel alloy with added chromium, copper and nickel, which is comparable to other alloy steels, such as stainless steel in terms of strength. The brown, rusty colour is characteristic and formed by a very dense oxide film that seals the underlying material from oxygen. The air and water-tight patina is formed over a six-month period and prevents the steel from rusting any further. CorTen steel does not require any treatment and is therefore extremely environmentally friendly. It can be applied outdoors without any adverse impact on the environment (which may not be the case when applying zinc or chemical coatings, for example). The coarse-grained patina is graffiti and sticker-resistant, and any repairs or alterations to the CorTen steel structure will become invisible over time due to its natural oxidation.
Maintenance: None required. Graffiti can be removed with a high-pressure washer. In the event of stubborn graffiti, CorTen can be blasted with corundum. The rust patina is then locally removed, but will gradually return. Any stains on the paving can be removed with a rust removing agent for stone surfaces. This requires a careful selection based on the pavement material used. Contact Streetlife for further advice.
The new weather resistant cored wires are not only designed in accordance to those requirements. As part of the GNEE family the seamless cored wires offer highest welding performance combined with a total resistance against moisture absorption.
