Corten Steel Plate
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.
When rust looks good
Corten steel sheet (also known as weathering steel) is instantly identifiable thanks to its rich, bright orange tones. 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. There’s no need to paint this one and it just looks better with age, no wonder designers love it. For years, Corten has been the metal of choice for containers and other shipping elements. More recently, though, it's become the material of choice for many artists, architects and interior designers. We're proud to supply talented artists and sculptors with Corten for their gorgeous projects, including UK-based Eddie Roberts, who works the metal into stunning creations. As well as art, Corten steel cladding is extremely popular and it is often used for buildings, giving it a tough coating against the elements and an industrial-looking edge. Recently, our weathering steel was used both inside and out for the makeover of The Western, a stylish Brighton bar. We supply our weathering steel panels in a huge variety of thicknesses and sizes and our free cutting service means we can trim it down to the precise size you need, with no minimum order. Just email us for your Corten Steel prices. Whether you’re looking for stunning aesthetics, weather performance or a wonderful mix of both, it delivers.
How it’s made: Weathering steel is an alloy, which is what makes it so resistant to the elements. The addition of nickel, copper and chromium at the production stage means that over time, a protective patina will develop on the surface of the metal.
Good for: Cladding, containers, marine transportation, bridges, general architecture, interiors, art installations, water features, sculptures, planters and many more.

What our customers say about us:
“Great value, fast and efficient. We wanted to fabricate Corten steel doors and this company shipped metal really quickly to Northern Scotland, a part of the world which many companies refuse to deliver to. The fact that they will send large sheets of steel here is greatly appreciated. The Corten steel panels cost was also very reasonable.
I will definitely not hesitate or shop around next time, I will Buymetalonline.” – Peter Thompson, Trustpilot, December 2015.
The most famous Corten steel building is the Barclay Centre in Brooklyn, New York, which is made of 12,000 weathering steel panels.
