Often called Weathering Steel, Corten Steel (COR-TEN) exhibits greater resistance to atmospheric corrosion than other steels due to its special chemical composition. Under the influence of the weather, steel forms a protective layer on its surface. To form the protective coating, the steel is allowed to rust.

Because of the high copper content, the surface develops a natural patina, which is rust-like and has an attractive reddish-brown colour. Under normal outdoor conditions, the protective coat forms within six months or can be accelerated with the addition of brine, which begins the surface protection process within hours. A limited number of producers worldwide supply Corten, which is an expensive material. The cost of 316 stainless steel is similar.
