Patinated Copper Patina
Star Blue copper is a preweathered surface patina on copper offered by A. Zahner Company. The custom copper sheet product provides a range of unique visual color textures on authentic copper surfaces.
Zahner began working with copper patination when the company was formed in the late nineteenth century. To get the aged copper look of ancient domes requires entire centuries of weathering in conditions that are neither too dry nor too humid. Zahner uses a technique that speeds up this process.
The custom patina can be used on a range of different wall paneling systems, roofing systems, and architectural accents, as well as art and sculpture projects of any scale. Patinas are often preferred over paints for their natural weathering and aging, a much desired trait compared with painted surfaces which deteriorate.
