Corten is a robust, versatile and economical weathering steel. Because the material develops a protective patina of rust, it holds benefits over a more traditional mild steel as it prevents it from deteriorating.

Corten is commonly used for items such as planter boxes, architectural installations, fences, sculptures, letterboxes, signage, garden art and much more.
