The gilded material "TECU Gold" by KME, an alloy made of copper and aluminum, is primarily used to clad buildings. The material begins to tarnish soon after it has been applied to the object and gradually produces an impressive warm gold-gleaming surface which looks unmistakably like the precious metal even if it does not glitter. When used inside, however, the original shiny yellow gold color remains.
Facades covered in TECU Gold exude a clear and unique quality. The material offers good mechanical resistance to abrasion, is extremely resistant to corrosion, is hardy and rigid. And thus the symbolic quality which the material communicates is guaranteed for many years to come. These positive properties are also undoubtedly a reason why increasing numbers of architects and planners decide on this expressive material. Gold comes and stays!
Here we show a variety of projects in which the material TECU Gold has been used - at times in panels, at times in expanded metal or shingle form, or in a specially perforated custom version.
