Originally developed for building coal carriages in 1930s America, it is now one of the most stylish and durable metals on the market. Corten steel plate might look like it's rusty, but thanks to clever manipulation in its processing, the outer oxidisation actually protects the steel from further corrosion, as well as making it look very good indeed.
The picture shows our natural/raw Corten sheet when first purchased and typically what it looks like after the weathering process, which takes between 3-10 months after exposure to the elements.

Iron Zinc (IZ), gets its name from the iron zinc alloy it is coated with. Even though it has the same centre as galvanised, the different coating gives it a whole new bunch of properties and allows it to be specialised for different applications. IZ or galvanneal as it is sometimes referred to, provides a matte and consistent grey coloured finish and is more brittle and harder than galvanised. Famous for its welding, bending and forming ability makes it a favourite within the car and door manufacturing industries, especially with its high-quality painting properties and the extra scratch resistance given by its coat.
