DS Format Rust

Format Rust is corrosion-resistant and weather-resistant type of steel that has proved itself popular in the Danish construction industry in recent decades. This type of steel is used in shopping centres, recycling centres, culture centres, educational institutions, residential properties and many more building types. “The United States of America Steel Corporation” developed Corten Steel in the 1930s for use in rail freight carriages to transport coal and as a replacement for steel in bridge structures where the maintenance of the underside was particularly difficult. It became evident that this strong, low-alloy and weldable type of steel is highly weather-resistant in many different climatic conditions without the need for protective coatings or paint. When Format Rust is exposed to the wind and weather, a patina of rust forms relatively quickly. It is precisely this layer that reduces perforation due to corrosion by up to eight times compared to ordinary steel.
