Among the many anodized aluminum options, Lorin offers the updated Anodized Copper Collection, ideal for exterior and interior architectural finishes. The Lorin sales team focuses on helping architects and designers select the products that will “Reflect Your Vision” by providing a beautiful and elegant copper look.
Shipped ready to form and punch, Lorin’s Anodized Aluminum Copper weighs 60 percent less than real copper and painted steel products, providing strength and ease of use, along with a naturally beautiful finish. Available in coil and sheets.
Anodized aluminum is easy to manipulate and requires less work than other metals, including copper. Anodizing is an electro-chemical process that builds an anodic layer from the aluminum, thus protecting it from the elements. The Lorin Anodized Copper Collection offers a variety of copper shades – but the best part is that whichever shade you choose will last a very long time, since it won’t patina like natural copper. The durable material will not chip, flake, peel, or corrode. It also resists scratches and requires minimal maintenance.
Lorin’s Anodized Copper Collection of finishes for exterior applications are available from medium to dark to copper penny, applied to mill finish, short line brush, long line brush, OSB (one-side-bright), or stucco embossed. For interior applications, choose from OSB (one-side-bright), short line brush, or long line brush finishes.
The Lorin Copper Collection is 100 percent recyclable, making it a smart, environmentally responsible material decision. It is an excellent choice for architects working on Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building projects.
