Aurubis offers copper for roofs and façades treated with a variety of factory-applied surface treatments to create various stages of oxidation and patination. The surface finishes in the Nordic Copper range include varying intensities of brown oxidation and green or blue pre-patination. Aurubis provides prefabricated systems for the material as well.
Nordic Décor is an extensive product line combining pre-oxidized, burnished and pre-patinated copper with various mechanical surface treatments such as grinding and pattern embossing. The material can be shaped, edged, milled, lasered, cut and bent.
The individual treatments offer new design horizons and opportunities for use in different applications:
- Hotel bars and counters
- Wall design
- Elevator cladding
- Eye-catching decor
Nordic Décor grindings are applied onto one face of the copper sheet to achieve a rustic and grainy surface finish, the type and intensity of the grinding can be adjusted individually. Grinding is suited to Nordic Standard/Nordic Brown/Nordic Brass/Nordic Bronze
Any Nordic Copper product can be embossed. The embossing type and intensity can be individually developed and adjusted. Pre-patinated surfaces with embossings can be ground for additional design effects.

Copper sheets and strips go through a carefully controlled pre-oxidization and pre-patination process to immediately provide the same brown oxidized and green or blue patinated surface that would develop naturally over. The pre-patination process encourages the natural patina to continue forming through environmental exposure, dependent on the local atmosphere and rainfall.
Custom-Made Surface Finishes and Forms
Aurubis regularly works with designers to explore custom-made copper surface finishes and forms. Custom options can include:
- Imaging or text printing surfaces
- Profiled sheets and pressed surfaces
- Perforated or expanded copper sheets
Planning and Installation Support
Aurubis can achieve different architectural effects of texture and scale using different installation techniques and systems – ranging from traditional standing seam sheet installation to panels, cassettes and other pre-fabricated systems.
