4 Things You Didn’t Know About Cor-Ten Steel 20/10/2015

The intense richness of a Cor-Ten finish bestows a warm, natural, yet at the same time extremely elegant look. Its distinctive appearance is a result of an oxidation process which forms a protective patina that remains unchanged over the years. Brombal USA would like to share five facts about our Cor-Ten Steel material that you may have not known:

1.) Cor-Ten Steel is Thermally broken
Like all materials we offer at Brombal USA, our Cor-ten is thermally broken material. Ebe and OS2 thermally broken sections are bonded together using two materials: the first is a fiberglass reinforced extrusion and the second is a high-density polyurethane resin injected under high pressure. This process firmly joins the frame sections together, ensures a continuous bond, and provides thermal insulation while maximizing structural strength. After years of intense research, the OS2 was born providing narrow sightline, thermally broken window and door systems.


2.)  Cor-Ten is Weathered Steel
What gives Cor-Ten it’s aged, rustic look?   Cor-Ten steel is created when the steel forms a layer of rust, protecting the material against moisture, and slowing the corrosion process.  Although the material may be just a couple months old, it can appear as from past decades.  For example, the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY has a Cor-Ten exterior structure.  Over 12,000 pieces of steel were weathered at a plant in Indiana, and then put through multiple wet-and-dry cycles a day to give that rustic look.  In just a few short months, the Cor-Ten on the Barclays Center has the same weathered steel that would naturally take 6 years.


3.) What’s In the Name?
Cor-Ten steel is a high tensile strength, corrosion resistant, steel alloy, containing copper, chromium and phosphorus. The name (Cor-Ten) reflects the special properties of this allow: corrosion resistance (Cor) and high tensile strength (Ten). These properties make Cor-Ten steel particularly suitable for use in any environment.


4.) Cor-Ten Contains Protective Rust Layer
During the transformation of Cor-Ten, the large rolls of Cor-Ten steel are cut to the required width and rolled to the specific profile section. Upon exposure to air, the patina process begins which creates a protective layer of rust over the surface. Left untreated, the rust will create an ever changing appearance. A surface wax treatment can be applied which will stop the continued rusting and will provide a protective barrier against the elements.

Brombal USA Bronze Windows Featured In New York Magazine 06/10/2015

Rusk Renovations utilized Brombal USA windows to create a minimalist townhouse for a West Village family in New York City.  Using our bronze windows, we were able to capture the beauty of the outdoor garden, and also execute the double-height living room.  Our bronze windows are thermally broken.  Sections of the window are bonded together using two materials: the first is a fiberglass reinforced extrusion and the second is a high-density polyurethane resin injected under high pressure. This process firmly joins the frame sections together, ensures a continuous bond, and provides thermal insulation while maximizing structural strength.

The owners of this townhouse strived to make their home as eco-friendly as possible.  They attempted bring wellness into their design and wanted to enjoy a safe environment for their growing family.  Fortunately, Brombal USA bronze windows have great resistance to air, wind and water.  They are also 100 percent recycled material. Some other perks to purchasing one of our bronze products would be that they are high quality, resulting in the most natural look, and easily replicates historical bronze for a perfect restoration.  We were able to make this project possible with the help of our dealer, Steel Windows and Doors USA.  For this minimal space, bronze windows were a great solution, with simplicity and functionality for this client.
