Bayswater, VIC – Announcing the new Rustfab weathering steel, the representative for the company noted that the new line of steel material is aimed at meeting the specific demands of customers who are interested in purchasing weathered steel with a rust-like appearance.
The representative for the company said, “As the name suggests, we are now distributors of all types of the popular weathered steel material that goes by the name Corten. Weathered steel is made up of a group of steel alloys which were developed to eliminate the need for painting and form a rust-like appearance after several years of exposure to the weather, all while maintaining its structural integrity.”
Discussing the origin of the steel material – Rustfab, the representative for the company added, “Weathering steel was developed in the United States in the early 1930s and was primarily used in railroad hopper cars for the handling of heavy loads including coal, metal ores, and all other types of mineral products. The controlled corrosion of weathered steel is what this material is best known for and is visually appealing when used for outdoor sculptures, as it brings a rustic antique appearance to any new project.”
