This can take some time, Corten Steel has a reactive patina period of between 3 and 9 months depending on location and climate. The patina or rust acts as a protective barrier - it will not penetrate or compromise the structural integrity of the material. The colouration of each item will vary as the weathering process takes place, eventually producing a rusty brown patina.
Stage 1 - Freshly manufactured Corten Steel. At this stage the dark oily residue coats the Corten Steel.
Stage 2 - The oily residue is beginning to break down, as the Corten Steel begins to weather.
Stage 3 and 4 - The "Run-Off" stage - This can take around 3-9 months depending on weather and positioning.
Stage 5 and 6 - The final stages of the weathering process.
