Nordic Blue products are pre-patinated at the Aurubis mill to immediately provide the same blue patinated surface that otherwise develops over time in the environment. The pre-patination process encourages the continuing formation of natural patina through environmental exposure, dependent on local atmospheric and rainfall conditions.
Different intensities of patina flecks can be created, revealing some of the dark-oxidized background material, enabling architects to determine the type and intensity of the blue patina with choices of Nordic Blue Living surface finishes.
Aurubis also develops special individual levels of patination to meet the design requirements or to match historically patinated copper on existing buildings.
Nordic Blue surface finishes can be combined with each other or with other surface finishes to create various visual impacts, e.g. with Nordic Royal or Nordic Bronze.
All Nordic Copper products are also suitable for indoor use.
