Corten steel, often referred to as weathering steel, is a group of steel alloys which were developed to eliminate the need for painting, and form a stable rust-like appearance after several years exposure to weather. U.S. Steel holds the registered trademark on the name COR-TEN. The name COR-TEN refers to the two distinguishing properties of this type of steel: corrosion resistance and tensile strength. The surface oxidation of weathering steel takes up to 6 months but surface treatments are available commercially that can accelerate the oxidation. Corten is delivered to you with some rust but mostly grey in appearance. It is important to keep the letters exposed to the weather and to wet the steel often to promote rusting. Typically ready to ship in 10 production days.
ALL OUR LETTERS AND LOGOS CARRY OUR LIFETIME GUARANTEE!
The no-mount option is for when you want to glue letters directly to a flat surface using some kind of adhesive such as silicon caulk or liquid nails. The problem with this type of installation is that glue tends to squeeze out the edges and it can get very messy. Also, until your glue sets the letters can move around and for large letters that means you need to use long strips of masking tape to hold them in place.
WELDED STUD MOUNT
Only available on 1/8" material thickness. Welded studs are prone to failure and we recommend the 1/4" material option with drilled and tapped studs that are removable. A stud mount of one form or another is required when ordering Polished or Anodized letters because the manufacturing process cannot be done without them.
REMOVABLE STUD MOUNT
The most popular mount with cut metal letters is the stud mount. Aluminum letters and numbers with removable or screw in studs, have been drilled and tapped on the back of the letter to accept the stud. The stud then gets glued into your mounting surface with silicon caulk or epoxy and holds the letters firmly in place. All stud type mounts require a mounting pattern to properly locate where to drill for the studs. A stud mount of one form or another is required when ordering Polished, Anodized or Powdercoated aluminum letters because the manufacturing process cannot be done without them.
