Pre-Weathering Service

Urban Metalwork offers a “Pre-Weathering” service as part of our supply of Corten weathering steel.

Prior to the Corten weathering and looking “rustic & natural” the material initially looks like standard untreated Mild Steel.

As the metal gets wets and dries repeatedly, it begins it’s weathering process.

This can take time, depending on location, environment and many other factors.

To speed up this process, Urban Metalwork can pre-weather the panels in our factory and supply them to site at their weathered stage, removing the waiting period.

We have a mixture of chemicals and topical treatments we use that can achieve months of natural weathering in just a few days.
