Corten Steel

Why use Corten Steel from Tubeco, Inc.?


Weathering steel has many advantages over mild steel for structures that are outside and exposed to the elements.
Environment – weathers to natural brown which blends with the surrounding environment.
Strength – increased strength allows for weight savings vs mild carbon steel.
Cost savings – saves the cost of initially painting or coating the steel and the subsequent maintenance cost over its lifetime. Costs less than mild steel that has been coated.
Protection – develops its own protective coating which slows the rate of corrosion
Appearance – weathering steel changes and improves with age giving it great curbside appeal.
