Product: Weathering Steel – “COR-TEN®”
Location: Nashville, Tennessee
Graphitti Sign & Graphic Studio is committed to incorporating sustainability into our signage products. That is one reason why we utilize materials such as “weathering steel”. Weathering steel is also known as “COR-TEN®”, the trademarked name owned by U.S. Steel designated as A606-4 or A588 is weathering steel. This material brings many advantages for use in products such as monument signs, post signs and post & panel signs.
Weathering steel can be completely recycled. Aside from the benefits of the recyclable nature of the material, weathering steel provides longevity from signage made from the material. Weathering steel does not need to be primed or painted as it generates a thin brown layer of rust which protects the metal from additional oxidation. This coating of rust provides a unique look and allows for little to no maintenance which is cost effective for your business!
This protective rust coating provides aesthetic advantages in addition to durability. Weathering steel has an aged look that makes it feel antiquated. It brings a classic feel to any sign in any location. You can also use this material for an industrial aesthetic. Many roadway bridges are constructed of weathering steel. An example is provided with the image above. This is the bridge over the New River Gorge in West Virginia and never requires painting. Bridges and guardrails are made with this material for the same reasons we use it for your sign solutions: unique ascetics, low maintenance costs, durability, longevity, strength and cost efficiency! Let us discuss the rewards of this effective material with you today!
In the images above and below, you can see examples of the types of signs that can be produced with weathering steel.
