Patina forming on the wall and various pre-patina options give these solid metals a live, genuine surface for very long time spans.
Copper can be pre-patinated to a variety of colours. Greenish pre-patinated colours change less than others over the years. The colour of naturally formed patina for copper, brass and bronze depends on environmental conditions, typically resulting in a dark brownish matt surface. Each alloy will attain a different hue. Nordic Royal is alloyed with aluminum and retains its colour.

Materials

Surface treatment Material thickness (mm) Corrosivity category UV resistance Minimum order amount (m2)
Pre-patinated (no coating) 0.7 C4 n/a 100

Material thicknesses 1.0 mm & 1.5 mm are used in Liberta & lamella products and 0.7 mm in design profiles.

UV resistance describes how well the coating is able to keep its original colour and gloss levels in accordance with EN10169. The higher the class, the better the resistance.

Corrosivity categories describe the outdoor climate conditions in accordance with EN12944. The higher the category, the more corrosive environment.

Other materials

Colour-coated

Colour-coated metal facade products are a durable way to use colours in all sizes of monotone surfaces and colour compositions.

Rheinzink

Patinated Rheinzink has an aesthetically soft, matt surface that gives a very natural impression. The patina changes very little over time.

Glass

Glass creates a high gloss and durable flat surface for the facade.

Aluminium

Brushed design aluminium produces a brushed, directional shine combined with the high gloss of a varnish layer.

Pattern-painted aluminium

The painted pattern on the metal sheet makes the surface livelier when observed at very close proximity. 

Cor-Ten

Cor-Ten is a solid steel that has a natural, rugged patina that ages continuously in a unique way.

Stainless steel

Stainless steel maintains its shine and appearance very well and, as a solid material, it is very easy to maintain.
