Brief Introduction of Corten Steel Cladding
A curtain wall system is an out covering of a building, which is not just the building’s skin, they are the face as wall, Aesthetic pay more and more attention on the curtain wall, when they design , they not only consider the economic but also begin to consider the contextual factor, such as surrounding building, climate, etc.
The size of Corten Steel Cladding size
Corten steel is the weather resistant high strength steel, the resistant of the corten steel to corrosion is 6-8 higher compare to traditional steel, as well as featuring double resistance to tension strength. In the beginning, the exposed corten steel will occur rust just like common steel, but before a long film, is formed on the surface and the protect layer emerge rust red color making full of retro romantic feeling
Here are the difference between the common steel and the corten steel
Corrosion resistance : Due to Corten steel obtain with copper, chrome and Phosphorus, corten steel have the characteristic of the self-protection, the corrosion resistance is better than the common steel
Beautiful surface: After a long time exposed, the steel will formed on film on the surface, the rusted film of the corten steel will be protect the steel and beautiful, but the surface of the common steel will be dirty ugly
Light weight: Comparing with the common steel, corten steel can bear long lasting corrosion, the thicker of the corten steel will have the same affect , which reduce the weight of the curtain wall
Strong strength: corten steel can bear the tensile strength and great impact than the common steel
The other benefits of Corten steel are immediately obvious—easily installation, repair and recyclable.
According to the technical innovation and skill, more and more architecture take corten steel curtain into account. Its unique look remains attractive and there are endless combination possibilities using other materials and colors. In order to accelerate the oxidation process, the Corten steel cassettes are treated to achieve the desired result much faster.
Aesthetically pleasing to the eye, more and more people require the steel plate to be pre-rusted. This finish has become popular with many high profile architects and has been specified and used in a variety of applications including building facade, architectural curtain wall etc.
service: pre-rusted treatment, bending, cutting, welding, profiling, punching and designing as the requirement.
