However, it has some extremely problematic negative aspects… but we might be able to get around some of those.
Check out my latest technical article, published on the website of the Denver Chapter of the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI), “COR-TEN and Other Weathering Steel Alloys in Architectural Applications” .
