Cutout rusted steel

The use of Rusted steel is becoming more and more popular within our industry. The amazing colour and texture that is created offers a totally different and interesting effect which is an option when looking at any metal product we have to offer.
The steel we use here in Australia for this purpose is referred to as HW350 or Corten and generally comes in 3mm thick sheets.
The purpose of this material is that the surface corrodes to a point of stability and therefore creates an even rust finish quite quickly without the possibility of it corroding any further.
After a short time the rusted surface will remain largely stable. You may have seen old farm machinery lying around in paddocks, and you will find that neither rubbing nor wetting will remove the surface; you will find that something similar will occur when you choose to have your project manufactured in rusted steel
