John Tainton are continually reviewing the market and looking at products that are starting to show trends and have a demand within the UK & Ireland.
The latest material to be brought in to our already extensive range will be the original COR-TEN® direct from SSAB.
This grade of steel has been designed and formulated to avoid having to paint steel for protection. This means that it has increased resistance to atmospheric corrosion when compared to unalloyed steels. It achieves this by forming a protective rust-coloured oxide layer on its surface. Its alloying with copper and chromium ensure the formation of a firmly adhering protective layer of ‘rust’ which delivers a particular aesthetic appearance and weathering performance.
Due to the finish that the steel produces over time, it has become the chosen product for many architectural designs, sculptures and landscaping projects but also many industry’s such as petrochemical and transport.
If you have any questions about the product then please do not hesitate to contact John Tainton on the details below:
