Weathering steel, also known as Corton steel, commonly used in corten steel landscape
. It's special is that when exposed to nature, over time, the surface will form a protective layer against corrosion, without painting protection, and the life of the material is more than 80 years. Weathering steel
is mainly used for steel structures such as railways, vehicles, bridges, towers and other long-term exposure to the atmosphere. Its special feature is that it is exposed to the natural environment, and with the action of air and rain, the surface of the steel will automatically form a corrosion-resistant protective layer
In the early 20th century, some avant-garde foreign artists used steel for sculpture.As steel corrosion is a natural state of the material itself, it is in line with the principle of authenticity of artistic expression.
