How to Weather Corten Steel
Corten Steel is a durable, weathering steel that starts out a typical steely gray color and develops a warm, rust-colored patina over time. Unlike rust, however, this patina is non-corrosive and doesn't affect the steel's integrity.
You can let the steel weather naturally, or speed it along with a simple solution of vinegar, salt, and hydrogen peroxide — ingredients you most likely already have at home.
In this video we give you the exact recipe and instructions for weathering your Corten Steel products quickly and safely.
