24h-Rust-Method for Corten Steel
Corten steel is processed with a metallic blank surface. The desired patina develops within the first 2 to 3 weeks due to weathering. The process ends only after about 1.5 to 3 years. Important for the creation of a working blocking air-layer is the alternation between humid and dry weather.
Accelerated Development of Patina
Often customers wish to have the patina look right from the very start. As it is mostly not possible to wait for such a long time Gartenmetall® has developed a special procedure which we call the 24h-rust-method. This method works within 24 hours and accelerates the development of a corrosion retardant blocking air-layer.
1. Use a degreasing cleaner to free the surface from rests of grease and dirt.
3. Leave it for 3 – 12 hours
2. Using SUPER ROST-pads rub in the surface evenly.
4. Rinse the corten steel object thoroughly after the application
