New Journal Entry: COR-TEN and Other Weathering Steel Alloys in Architectural Applications
COR-TEN and other weathering steel alloys are popular among architects for their rusty appearance, which is caused by the actual rusting of the metal. Once the rusting starts, the metal begins to turn orange, and over time can become a dark brownish color. On thick weathering steel panels, this corrosion can act as a protective layer that prevents further corrosion. Weathered weathering steel can be aesthetically pleasing, yet the same corrosion which causes the rust can actually perforate thin-gage weathering steel sheets. To read more, click here.
