Corten Steel Topic Planter by Adezz
Our gorgeous Corten Steel Topic planter by Adezz will make a fantastic addition to any modern garden design. Available in three impressive sizes, these stunning planters will be an eye-catching display in the unique corten orange. The large cylindrical design is finished off beautifully with the slight extension to the upper of the planter, which although is only a small design feature, adds a big impact. The size of these Corten Steel Topic planters means they are perfect for use when planting with small trees and other larger plants. Fabricated from high-quality 2mm thick Corten Steel which forms a self-protecting rust layer over time, these stylish planters are both hard-wearing and durable, suited to both domestic and commercial applications. With drainage holes in the base and 18mm feet as standard, it is easy for water to flow out and away from the planter. The unique style of these planters means they are perfect as stand-alone pieces or when used in combination with our other Corten Steel Planters to get a flow of corten orange throughout your garden.

What is Corten Steel? [read]
Created in the United States in 1939, Corten or Weathering Steel is an alloy that forms a natural rust coating over time as it is exposed to the weather. The outer layer rusts forming a protective coating which prevents degradation of the steel inside. Corten Steel is used all over the world. Notably in the UK one of our greatest landmarks, The Angel of the North by Anthony Gormley is made from Corten. Other striking examples include the Chicago Picasso Sculpture and the Museum of Old and New Art in Australia. [/read]
How will your Corten Steel weather? [read]
- In most cases your Corten Steel product will arrive un-rusted. It may have a slight patina or dark oily residue, this is completely normal.
- As weathering begins, the residue breaks down and the rusty colour will start to appear. During this time, any run-off may stain stone or concrete surfaces.
- After weathering (around 6-9 months), run-off may still occur but it will be minimal.
After your corten steel has arrived please unpack immediately, so that any moisture between the packaging does not remain sealed. If you do not do this, there may be irregular rust and stains. [/read]
What if you want to speed up the weathering? [read]
Fortunately science is on your side with a quick and easy fix. All you need is salty water. Dissolve around 1 teaspoon of salt in about 1 litre of water to get a weak salt solution. Spray or paint the solution evenly over your Corten Steel and that’s it! Repeat this process around 5 times over the period of a couple of weeks and you’ll see the rust developing in no time. [/read]
