Corten is a type of steel that naturally weathers over time, and developing an attractive and protective rust layer. It is really a paradox, as although it is rusted, to a degree, the surface actually has a layer that protects against further corrosion.In other words, the steel is allowed to rust in order to form the protective coating. This protective layer develops due to the elements that are active in the alloys of the steel. It regenerates continuously when subjected to the influence of water and oxygen. Create your own delightful display with your favourite plants in this lovely trough planter. With its organic and earthy quality, it works especially well in the garden, highlighting brightly coloured plants and beautiful brickwork. The Barclays centre in Brooklyn has been causing a stir worldwide with its striking, organic, rusted look. It has been made using corten steel, a material which is being favoured by innovative and daring designers, architects and sculptors across the globe.
Created originally in the 1930s by United States Steel for use on ore wagons, its use has now expanded, with designers seeing the potential it possesses. It has been used to create bridges, rail cars, transmissions towers, shipbuilding and, of course, garden products. This modern and contemporary material has really got people excited, creating discussion about how we design things and challenging the norm, which can only be a good thing. The image to the left shows how the planter will look when it first arrives and before the protective layer has started forming, looking much like any normal steel planter. If you wish, you can speed up the rusting process by using a cloth and rubbing the surface with salt and/or vinegar.Handy Drainage Hole and Bung. To provide adequate drainage, each Corten Steel Planter includes a drainage hole and bung in the bottom of the base, helping you retain or release water from your planter. If left in the planter the bung will help retain as much water as possible, however we cannot completely guarantee that no water will escape while the bung is in use. Please note : Once the planter has developed its protective rust layer it has the potential to stain objects it comes in contact with, please be mindful where you place your planter.
