Grate process for corten steel
Corten steel is processed with a metallic bright surface. The first patina of rust forms under natural weather conditions after about 2 to 3 weeks. The process of russeting is completed only after 1.5 to 3 years. Important for the formation of the functioning barrier layer is the alternation between wet and dry weather.
Often there is a desire that already at the time of installation of garden objects – regardless of weathering – the desired noble patina is formed. For this purpose, we at Gartenmetall® have developed a special 24-hour process for russeting. Treatment of the bare surface with our SUPER-ROST pad enables the formation of the corrosion-inhibiting barrier layer within 24 hours. Thus, we can deliver to you garden objects and street furniture, which already have a first rusty patina.
Our SUPER-ROST pad is not a dangerous good in the sense of the transport regulations. The product is not subject to labeling requirements according to EC Directives/ Ordinance on Hazardous Substances. The safety instructions on the packaging must be observed. The safety data sheet matching this product can be found in the download area.
The right application
of the SUPER-ROST pad
When rusting corten steel, there are always surprises, because not every surface reacts in the same way, nor does it always turn out the same shade. To make it work after all, we will show you how to give your garden object the desired surface in just a few steps. It can also be used to correct irregularities. Within 24 hours, thanks to the SUPER-ROST pad, a rust-colored patina has formed on the previously bare surface.
