Weathering steel or weather resistant steel was developed in the 1930s by the United States Steel Corporation and is trademarked as Cor-Ten. It features a controlled corrosion quality that makes it capable of withstanding weather as well as weight. Regular carbon steel has a porous oxide layer which holds moisture. This moisture can develop rust which can grow and weaken the surface especially in wet or humid situations. Cor-Ten or weathering steel has an oxide film on the surface which provides more resistance to moisture and corrosion.
Every business has unique storage needs. Portable steel containers made with Cor-Ten steel provide safe and secure storage for your inventory, tools and other valuable equipment. These containers are heavy duty, long lasting structures that make an excellent alternative to traditional storage. You might even call them “Super!”
