TECU® CLASSIC – SHEETS AND COILS

QUALITY

TECU® Classic sheet and coil is manufactured in state-of-the-art production facilities to EN 1172 and KME’s own strict guidelines.It is made from Cu-DHP – oxygen-free, phosphorus-deoxidised copper with limited residual phosphorus. Cu-DHP is well suited to welding and soldering, and is minimum 99.9% pure copper. Cu-DHP is outstandingly malleable, regardless of temperature or rolling direction. Both roof and façade grades surpass the requirements of EN 1172 regarding tolerances and the most important material properties. This gives cladding areas their excellent visual appearance.

SURFACE

TECU® Classic sheet and coil starts off with a bright and shiny copper surface. After installation, it develops a matt, dark brown surface due to natural weathering and oxidation. During initial weathering, before the dark brown oxidised layer is established on the copper’s surface, a range of brown shades and even purplish hues can develop. On inclined cladding areas, the oxide layers are transformed by more intensive reaction to airborne substances and moisture, and coloured alkaline copper compounds form. A ‘typical copper’ patina green develops over time. This lends the building an unmistakeable accent, and the protective nature of the patina layer contributes to the material’s outstanding longevity.


SUSTAINABILITY AND TECU®

TECU® Classic is produced 100% from recycled copper! Due to the company’s high competence in copper and outstanding recycling capabilities, KME is the only manufacturer world-wide offering copper products for architectural applications exclusively made of 100% recycled material.
