HRPO vs. CORTEN?
The HRPO and the Corten are both premium materials that will last many, many years.
HRPO - This steel has a clean, consistent surface that is achieved by soaking the cooling steel coils in an acid bath, thus removing the scale that forms on the surface during the cooling process.
It is a selective, high quality material that is used throughout the construction industry in controlled and uncontrolled environments and trusted in endless professional structural applications. It will naturally rust in outdoor conditions and give many years of use without deterioration.
CORTEN - This is a high-quality steel alloy that is designed to withstand and stabilize in outdoor use applications. The term Corten can be broken down into Cor (Corrosion Resistance) & Ten (Tensile Strength). Frequently used in exterior architectural applications and for heavy use industrial purposes, the steel forms a protective outer layer of rust under the natural influences of the outdoor conditions it is exposed to. A long lasting, premium quality material.
