How Corten steel is made

Corten steel, often referred to as weathered steel, is made from high quality steel with a special alloy that encourages surface rust. That rust does not damage the product in any way, but instead protects it from the elements.

Corten steel comes from ‘cor’ –rosion resistance and ‘ten’ -sile strength inherent in steel.

The coating on the steel ages over time and exposure to the elements. It takes around a year to fully develop and will produce runoff when you first install it. This runoff can stain so be mindful of where you install the Corten steel edging.

Once the Corten steel has been outside for a few months, that runoff should stop and you should have a beautiful rust-coloured border.

Common uses for Corten steel

Corten steel is an innovative product often used in architecture and sculpture. Think Angel of the North and you’re on the right track. We stock a range of Corten products for the garden, including firepits, raised border boxes, stairs, storage options, tables and a range of other products.

It is also used in building, industry, landscaping and art. The aforementioned Angel of the North or the new Look II Statue in Plymouth created by Sir Antony Gormley are two examples of this material being used.

What our customers say about us:

Benefits of Corten steel

Corten steel has many benefits, including:

  • Very hard wearing
  • Weather-resistant thanks to that red layer of rust
  • Architectural and beautiful
  • Readily available
  • Comes in all shapes, sizes and configurations

Corten steel random facts

Corten steel is a special combination of steel and alloy. That alloy adds an exterior coating to the material that rusts when exposed to the elements. That rust takes a while to develop and will stop once the tiny pores in the steel become full of rust.

The end product is weather-resistant and has a much longer lifespan than bare rolled steel.

Mild Steel Welding Rods 3.2mm - E6818-W2 4kg Pack If you want to read what the manufacturer says then read below but if you want the overview then this bit is for you. The MacTrode E6818-W2 rod is a low hydrogen MMA rod that is designed specifically for weathering steels such as Corten. Because of the above if you get these rods damp and require to rebake them then it does require a higher heat for a slightly longer than normal time. 300 to 350 degrees C for 1 to 2 hours. These rods are made in the UK. A low hydrogen, basic flux coated electrode on a low carbon mild steel core wire with an extruded moisture resistant chemically basic flux which has controlled iron powder addition. The moisture resistant coating gives a very low weld metal hydrogen levels. The electrode recovery rate in respect to the core wire is approx. 120%. Smooth arc, low spatter, easy strike and restrike. The electrode is mainly used for weathering steels containing a similar controlled addition & is claimed to offer a threefold improvement in corrosion resistance compared with plain C, Mn steels. The weld metal also resists preferential corrosion in sea water, particularly in arctic waters high in oxygen & salinity, & has applications for welding micro alloys & carbon manganese steels in ice breaker vessels & offshore structures. Applications also include architectural structures, bridges & exhaust gas flues. Materials to be welded include Corten A, B1 (b. steel, US Steels) and other proprietary designations. BS4360 Grade WR50A to WR50C, ASTM A588 Grades A, B, C, K.

Made from our coveted Corten steel and boasting exceptional durability, this product will transform into the desired rustic look over time with natural element exposure, so all you need to do is sit back and relax whilst nature does its work. Stylish Corten steel Corten steel is rust-coloured metal that looks good and last for decades. The Angel of the North is made from Corten steel! Corten starts out grey in colour and oxidises to orange-brown after 8-10 months' exposure to the elements. Don't worry, Corten steel isn't corroding when it turns orange. In fact, it is developing an external layer that will protect the inner metal from moisture and decay. That's why Corten is as functional as it is good-looking. It's easy to see why architects and designers love this metal - and now you can quickly and easily introduce it to your outdoor space. Create rustic and industrial aesthetics with this versatile and durable material. See just how good Corten looks in gardens; browse our range of Corten garden products.

The interlocking sections are not included in these measurements. Height (excluding 150mm for the teeth): 100mm, 150mm, 290mm Each pack will come with 2 end pieces.

Good for: Lawns, flower beds, gardens, yards, allotments, courtyards, borders, rockeries, raised beds, vegetable patches, herb gardens. How it's made:  Nickel, chromium and copper are added to steel to create Corten. Originally designed for railway carriages, this is an alloy that's crafted to last. We cut 'sharks' teeth' into our edging to make it easy for you to sink into the ground; now we've added the interlocking function so that creating longer borders is a doddle. Benefits:
  • Amazingly easy to install
  • Long-lasting
  • Great-looking

Boasting rustic looks and incredible durability, Corten, or weathering steel, offers an instant industrial aesthetic that gets better with age. Please note the Teeth are 150mm in height, then your selected height will be above ground. Our Shark Edging is not eligible for express delivery as it can take longer (14 working days) for the Edging to be made by our gardening team. Our regular Corten steel garden edging is a huge hit with landscapers, but we wanted to create a product that everyone could install, even at home. By cutting a triangular shark's tooth pattern into the metal, we've made installation simple – all you have to do is sink the points into the ground and you're good to go. Available in a wide range of heights and lengths, our versatile spiked lawn edging will arrive to you in its natural state, with weathering causing the orange colour to develop within 8-10 months. That distinct coppery hue might look rusty, but the colour's actually down to an oxidisation process that protects the core from further corrosion. Browse our full range of Corten steel garden products for more ideas on how you can transform your outdoor space with weathering steel. Good for: Lawns, flower beds, gardens, yards, allotments, courtyards, borders, rockeries, raised beds, vegetable growing, herb gardens. How it's made:  Corten steel is an alloy, which is why it is so weatherproof. The addition of chromium, nickel and copper to the steel means that as it ages, this metal develops a protective outer layer (that's the rust-coloured coating). We cut the Corten into strips with shark-tooth edging, so you can create neat borders in minutes. What our customers say about us:
