A-Corten is our Premium Collection product specifically developed to provide an unequalled material for its variety and consistency.

As an expression of the passage of time, A-Corten was developed to satisfy the needs of the architecture and design worlds, in order to create environments that can be “worn” day to day, as promoted in the works of Alberto Burri and Roberto Silvestri, both real material artists.

So, with A-Corten our pre-painted metal Atelier can offer solutions for every need, with great flexibility, which in turn creates a kaleidoscope of chromatic effects, inexorably linked to the passage of time, and always open to characterization with your own customizations.

A-Corten emerges from a pre-painting production process using polyester paints, which achieve a convincing effect like that of Corten steel.

Its main characteristic is excellent corrosion resistance against atmospheric agents, because its natural oxidization process stops with time and without extending inside, forming an effective protective patina.

The material is highly prized in the architectural and design worlds, with its warm oxidized colour shades that develop on the surface. It is ideal for countless indoor and outdoor aesthetic compositions, thanks to an unusual “rusty elegance” that gives the impression of being “well-used” and marked with the signs of time.

Given that Corten is very easily soiled and not very workable, our solution achieves an optimum balance between looks and functionality.

The support base can be aluminium or steel and the product is recommended for all uses both interior and exterior, with a 10 year corrosion guarantee.

The production cycle is unable to guarantee any Delta E value, although different runs can certainly be used together.
