PureModern COR-TEN Weathered Metal Planters Are Naturally Water-Resistant and Frost-Resistant.
COR-TEN, or Corten, is a naturally oxidized steel alloy that is highly sought after for outdoor projects due to its unique look and weather resistance. COR-TEN is designed to resist corrosion with a protective patina that forms on the surface. This stable rust-like appearance makes them a stylish option for enduring moisture and the elements without losing their strength.
When you first receive your COR-TEN planter, it’ll have the look of raw metal and will begin to patina into bronze once placed outside. By request, we can speed up the patina process by pre-treating your planter before shipment, but it will need to go outside once you receive it to complete the oxidation process.
Before purchasing planters made from COR-TEN weathering steel, be aware that they will most likely bleed onto the supporting surface after heavy rain or watering. The structure still must be designed so that rainwater does not drain from the metal onto surfaces where staining would be visible.
