The material you're asking about is Corten steel, also known as weathering steel. The rust layer on Corten forms a protective coating and greatly reduces the long term corrosion of the material. You can find out some info about it on Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weathering_steel. Pay attention to the section regarding staining and continuing corrosion if the material remains in constant contact with water. I also believe that the runoff from Corten is corrosive to aluminum. Nonetheless, it's a great material when used properly, developing a beautiful patina over time.
