About Corten for our metal planter box / balcony planter box

Corten steel contains copper, chromium, manganese and nickel, which makes this a relatively expensive and at the same time durable material. When Corten is exposed to weather and wind it oxidizes. A thick layer of rust forms which protects this flower box. The copper color is more visible the more the steel is exposed. The steel goes from having a black metallic color to having a beautiful rusty surface. The oxidation process of the steel is already visible after 6 months outdoors. It takes about 2 years for the steel to achieve an evenly rusted surface if you don’t speed the process by brushing on salt water to this metal planter box. Its rusty surface creates a warm environment that is perfect both indoors and outdoors. If you are worried about rust stains from a flower box, you can spray matt clear lacquer on the rusty Corten to avoid rust residue.

 

About stainless steel for a metal planter box

316 L stainless steel is the second most used steel after 304. 316 has more nickel than 304, which provides higher durability and can handle acid better.

In general, it can be said that the stainless steel 304 is a good standard choice for long durability. This is if you do not place this planter box / balcony box near water or more exposed environments. In these cases, 316 L is preferred for a self-watering system even though it is about 30% more expensive than 304.

The Corten steel planter Trendsetter is completely unique of its kind. This is the metal planter box that many will envy and is worth investing in!
