We can offer mixed steel signs offering both cut out and stand off elements. The mixture of Corten and stainless steel makes for a unforgettable sign. Weathering steel, best known under the trademark of COR-TEN is steel that has been developed to eliminate the need for coating or painting. It forms a stable "rust" patina that looks great and also has increased resistance to corrosion compared to other mild steels. Our corten steel signs are 1.5mm thick. The stainless steel backing plate is also 1.5mm thickness and is fitted to the front corten panel with a choice of fixings.
Colour - these signs are designed to rust from an initial light rust colour that we start for you (as shown in the images on the listing). Once you have positioned your sign outside, the rust reaction will continue and the Corten sign will rust further. The colour and the patina will change and reach a rich dark umber colour (this takes 6 to 12 months depending on local weather conditions). This is the nature of this steel.
