ShapeScaper Redcor Edging
No longer Corten?
Weathering steel is often generically referred to as "corten" due to the long standing trademark COR-TEN® owned by U.S. Steel. In 1935 this copper steel alloy was developed by to eliminate the need for painting large bridge structures. "corten" steel forms a stable rust-like appearance when exposed to the weather. Until recently "corten" steel was only available as a hot rolled imported product. The quality and source at times being highly variable.
Australian Made Steel
ShapeScaper is proudly made in Australia using BlueScope, REDCOR® steel. This steel is cold rolled and has been specifically developed for Australian harsh conditions. Its cleaner to work with and displays an overall better uniform finish than imported alternatives. This steel has an increased resistance to corrosion as it forms a protective layer of oxide on its surface which regenerates as required over the steels life. Colours can range from dark orange to a rich dark brown. Over time it will continue to darken until you are left with a stunning, textured brown.
