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.
A traditional bright finish copper with a mill finish without any additional surface treatments that will oxidize in the environment. Aurubis offers other copper finishes with varying intensities of green or blue pre-patination, brown pre-oxidization, brass, a golden alloy and bespoke finishes.
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 time. 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.
