Copper Aluminium Sheet
Timeless Elegance: The Aged Beauty of Copper Aluminium Sheets in Building Facades
In our recent effort to innovate and take your cladding dreams to several notches higher, we have introduced Copper Aluminium Sheet known as “Phases”, which has a unique blend of timeless elegance and structural durability. When added in the exterior and interior for facading this is called “Copper Cladding”. This facade material combines the natural beauty of copper, its timeless metamorphosis, durability, flatness, ease of fabrication, and a plethora of shades that Viva Metal Composite Products are known for. With all the features of copper along with composite panels, these sheets give creative freedom to architects and space shapers.
Understanding The Composition Of Copper Aluminium Sheet
The copper composite panel is a composite building material whose top layer is Copper and the bottom layer is Aluminium. The combination of Copper and Aluminium along with a thin thermoplastic core for the non-fire retardant panel, and a mineral core for the fire-retardant panel, makes it the choice for interior and exterior wall Copper cladding, column cladding and retail branding.
Aging of Copper Cladding
Being exposed to rain, sunshine, and humidity causes weathering of the panels known as Patina, this causes the layer to change colour dynamically throughout the process. The formation of a patina takes years, and with time the colour of copper changes, adding a fresh new colour in every phase. Copper-aluminum sheets begin with a reddish-brown shade, sometimes tinged with silver. As time passes, the Copper cladding acquires a green patina, that not only enhances their aesthetics but also fortifies their durability.
The Initial Radiance:
Freshly manufactured copper sheets boast a pliable, red-orange nature. Upon initial exposure to air, these sheets reveal a captivating glossy finish, reflecting the vibrant essence of their surroundings.
As copper interacts with air, it undergoes oxidation- it is a natural process where Cu goes through a chemical reaction with Oxygen molecules in air, this initiates the transformative journey of wethered metal that has a rustic allure of brown and red.
The Hues of Patina:
Over time, due to metamorphosis the red-orange tone changes to shades of green which is known as the Patina of Copper. This transformation encapsulates the unique character of Copper.
The Virtues of Copper Cladding
The history of copper as a facade material is linked to its durability, corrosion resistance, appearance, and ability to form complex shapes. We have embedded these qualities. Let’s have a look at the Virtues of Copper which you can experience with Copper Composite Panel.
- High Recyclability
- Versatile and Melleable
- Minimal Upkeep
- Long-lasting performance
- Inherent Colour Transformation

Features of Copper Aluminium Sheet
1. Timeless Elegance:
The Copper Aluminium Sheets impart timeless elegance to the exterior and interior alike, as Copper goes through different phases, these panel adds a majestic appearance in any place it is installed.
2. Evolutionary Pallete:
These sheets embrace a palette that reflects the journey of the ages, adding depth and character to your design. With shades that represent natural tones of copper and the ability to change with time, allow designers and architects to be experimental with design.
3. Poetic Metaphor:
Copper cladding captures the poetic essence of history’s dance on your architectural masterpiece.
4. Artistic Expression:
Copper oxides, in which the brown metal changes into dusty red, and then transforms to green. This change in colour and texture is a profound expression of life’s journey. This gives artistic creativity in building materials to fabricators and space shapers.
Properties of Copper Cladding
- Versatile Application
- Lifetime Warranty
- Aesthetic Appeal
- Unique Patina Evolution
- Durable Beauty
- Environment Friendly
Copper Composite Panel Application
- They are mostly used in facade, roofing, and wall panelling in interiors
- These panels can be fabricated with the same techniques and tools as any other Viva ACPs.
- For installation, fasteners, and extrusers made of aluminium, galvanised steel, and stainless steel can be used.
- After installation, remember to peel off the strippable protective film.
With our latest launch “Phases”, the Copper Composite Panel, we want to provide architects and designers with a material that echoes the timeless beauty of Copper in this contemporary world of architecture. The fusion of Copper and Aluminium not only elevates the aesthetics but also adds the functional feature of both making it part of a modern age facade. *For further queries you may Contact Us our team or call to our customer care manager at 1800 303 3770
