Corten steel is known for its resistance to weather and wind and its unique rust patina, which provides a beautiful and distinctive appearance over time.
The steel is delivered with a small oil film and is thus not rusted upon delivery. We recommend washing with lukewarm soapy water after assembly to remove the oil film. Within a few weeks, depending on rainfall, the rust process will begin. If you are impatient, the process can be accelerated by washing followed by saltwater spray.
Corten steel is a unique material that is suitable for use in planters and raised beds. It is a corrosion-resistant steel that develops a rustic surface when exposed to weather and wind. This surface protects the steel from further rust, making it an ideal material for outdoor use.
Corten steel also has the unique property of changing color over time, giving a rustic and natural look to your garden environment. This can provide a beautiful contrast to the surroundings and create a unique expression in your garden.

Does corten steel transfer rust to the substrate?
Corten steel transfers minimally compared to regular steel. However, it will always transfer a bit to the substrate in the beginning of the rusting process.
Corten steel lasts up to 8 times longer than regular steel. The climate in which corten steel is used plays a significant role in durability. In optimal conditions, corten steel in gardens will last over 50 years, while a salt-laden air will negatively affect its lifespan.
