All Blueton stainless steel products are manufactured from grade 316 or grade 304 recycled material. We have a standard satin polished finish with optional finishes available.
Cast Iron, Ductile & Aluminium
Blueton cast products are manufactured using recycled materials, we are that passionate about using recycled materials, that we invested in our own foundry, here in Scotland. Which supplies our castings to BS EN 1561 : 1997 for grey iron, Ductile Iron (Also called Nodular or S.G. Irons) to BS EN 1563 : 1997 and Aluminium to BS 1490.
All Blueton mild steel products are manufactured from BS EN standard recycled material, which are finished as below.
Thanks to their patina layer, weathering steels can be used in outdoor structures without any separate surface treatment. At its best, weathering steel can save the costs of all the surface treatment and the repairs necessary later. The cost advantage in comparison to painted structures is emphasised in environments where regular repainting is required. The Rust Brown method extends the architectural use of weathering steels in indoor structures.
Hot-dip Galvanising & Powder Coating
All Blueton steel products are hot-dip galvanised according to the European standard EN-ISO 1461. An additional option is the availability of polyester powder coating to BS EN 13438 : 2005, where a choice of 36 standard RAL colours can be provided for most products, click here to view the Ral Colour chart.
