A-Copper is our Premium Collection product inspired by antique copper.

Copper is a historical material already used by some of the oldest testified civilizations, and its history is estimated to extend back at least 10,000 years. It was used, for example, to mint coins in ancient times (as early as the IV century B.C., Servio Tullio ordered the minting of “pecuniæ” coins).

Today copper’s formal, structural, and plastic properties are exploited in contemporary art, architecture, design, and technology.

With A-Copper, our pre-painted metal Atelier can offer a finish that recreates the effect of copper, to best satisfy every design requirement.

This treatment cycle involves application of polyurethane paints together with a transparent super PE coating on an aluminium or steel base (ZINCOPPER), to achieve a finished appearance similar to antique copper.

The product is recommended for all outdoor uses (tinsmithing, cladding). Since the pattern is created using multiple colours, it is not possible to guarantee any Delta E value, although different runs can certainly be used together.
