Five buildings, one museum
TECU® Brass is a new material - with a reddish golden surface for impressive new façade solutions using copper.
TECU® Brass is a CuZn15-grade copper and zinc alloy that has been specially designed for use on façades. Weathering changes the original
reddish golden colour of the surface in a very lively manner, with each façade developing its own unique characteristics. After the initial matting, the surface takes on a greenish brown tone, which slowly turns greyish brown before evolving into a dark
brown-anthracite colour. On sloping surfaces, a uniquely individual patina layer typical of classical copper surfaces develops.
TECU® Brass offers outstanding mechanical abrasion resistance, extremely high corrosion resistance and durability as we
ll as excellent stability and material rigidity. The material can be easily cold-shaped and soft-soldered. Because of its special material characteristics, TECU® Brass is also well suited for large-area applications.
TECU® Brass is an ideal complem
ent to the TECU® product range and can be perfectly combined with the other copper surfaces. TECU® Brass offers without exception all the familiar economic advantages of the TECU® brand name.
