Corten steel sheetThe Metal Store is one of the leading online Corten steel sheet suppliers in the UK.
Corten steel is part of a group of steel alloys called weathering steel. The name corten refers to its three signature properties rustic colouring, high strength and incredible resistance to corrosion.
Corten steel owes its weathering resistance and unique rustic colouring to the formation of an oxide rust patina layer, created through natural exposure to the weather. This layer usually takes around 6-12 months to form naturally (although there are pre-weathering processes that can speed this up) and protects the steel against further corrosion. If chipped or damaged, corten steel will continuously regenerate itself, giving it a greater consistency of appearance and little need for regular maintenance or painting.
What is Corten steel sheet used for?Corten steel sheet is typically used in outdoor environments that help it play to its strengths. Examples include being used for external cladding, containers and signage, but it has also become popular amongst architects, artists and sculptors to create design features such as planters or garden edges, and popular works of art.
Our Corten steel sheet rangesWe stock a wide range of Corten steel sheet products ranging in size and thickness.
Our full Corten steel sheet range consists of the following:
- 1.5mm Thick Corten Steel Sheet
- 2mm Thick Corten Steel Sheet
- 3mm Thick Corten Steel Sheet
Our 1.5mm and 2mm Corten steel is cold reduced and our 3mm Corten steel is hot rolled. Each of the above thicknesses can be purchased in a range of standard widths and heights. Simply select the appropriate Corten steel sheet product thickness above to view the range we offer.
All our Corten steel sheet is supplied un-weathered, meaning it will arrive as shown in the product images.
As the Corten steel sheet progresses through the natural 6-12 month weathering process, the rust patina layer will change its appearance to the dark brown / orange rustic tones synonymous with Corten metal. The speed of this process will be dependent on the wet-dry environment in which it’s placed.
Our Corten steel sheet can also be fixed directly to a flat surface with screws and we can add fixing holes, (4 no. holes, 1 in each corner) if needed. Please add 'fixing holes' to your shopping cart if you require this service.
