01 product description
TECU® Gold is a new material - with a precious golden surface for impressive new façade solutions using copper.
TECU® Gold is a copper and aluminium alloy. The original shiny golden colour of the surface goes through characteristic changes when exposed to normal weathering. After the initial matting, a golden and yellowish oxidation layer gradually emerges, and this changes over time into a soft golden colour. The patination processes do not give rise to any further intensive colouring on façade surfaces.
TECU® Gold offers outstanding mechanical abrasion resistance, extremely high corrosion resistance and durability as well as excellent stability and material rigidity. The material can be easily cold-shaped and processed using standard techniques. Because of its special material characteristics, TECU® Gold is also well suited for large-area applications.
TECU® Gold is an ideal complement to the TECU® product range and can be perfectly combined with the other copper surfaces. All the familiar economic advantages of the TECU® brand name apply without exception to TECU® Gold.

02 Technical Data
TECU® Cassettes are cladding elements with folded edges on all sides which are generally produced according to planning specifications and are usually custom made.
TECU® Cassette profiles can be subdivided into three types according to the design of the fixings:
- Cassettes with overlapping, folded edges on all sides and a visible fixing to the substrate.
- Cassettes with folded edges on only two sides, vertically separated, with concealed fixings connected to specially designed fittings.
- Cassettes with the form and design described in position 2, but where assembly is via the folded edges of both sides using concealed bolts as fixings.
