Nordic Blue Copper
Nordic Blue™ products offer designers unparalleled design freedom and the ability to determine the type and intensity of blue patina for each project with choices of ‘Living’ surfaces. In a carefully controlled, factory process, pre-oxidised copper compounds to create the desired patina colours and heat-treated to chemically bind them to the copper.
The factory process can be accurately controlled so that, as well as the solid blue patina colour, other intensities of patina flecks can be created revealing some of the dark oxidised background material. Aurubis’ experts can also work in partnership with architects to develop special individual levels of patination to meet their design requirements or to match historically patinated copper on existing buildings.
The material is easily bent and formed, and there are no limitations on the length of pre-painted copper sheet or strip because whole coils are treated on the production line, not just limited size sheets.
Nordic Blue™ is available in sheets or coils with one surface treated. It can also be provided in a wide range of different forms and used in various systems.
The most common compound found in natural patinas all over the world is the copper sulphate mineral brochantite. Aurubis’ factory-applied patinas have been developed with properties and colours based on the same brochantite mineralogy.
In marine climates, the natural copper patina contains some copper chloride giving it more of a blue colour and this is emulated with Nordic Blue™. Brochantite is a light blue colour and Aurubis’ Nordic Blue™ patination is 100% brochantite.
It can also be provided in a wide range of copper roofing and cladding forms and used in various systems. Euroclas’s copper roofing and cladding systems are all detailed below. Euroclad works throughout WA, Victoria, NSW and Queensland.
