 Roofinox Stainless steel 316L

Roofinox AG has been supplying the roof and façade specialists with the highest quality rust-free stainless steel for over 30 years. Roofinox stainless steel has been specially developed for use on the building envelope and can be found on roofs, facades and in the building’s drainage.

Roofinox stainless steel is made in their factory in Germany, made from approximately 85% recycled material and is itself 100% recyclable. Roofinox stainless steel is available in a variety of surface designs, offers an unbeatable life-span and is virtually free of maintenance.

Roofinox was the first matt-finished brand name stainless steel on the market in 1999 and established itself very quickly.

Roofinox Tin-matte Stainless Steel

The popular traditional metal for optically appealing and very long lasting roofs is also frequently used to restore historic roofs, for beauty and also great durability. It is therefore perfect for modern roofs for exactly the same reasons. Tin matte metal roofs go well with timer facades as both weather to natural grey tones, which produces an organic, aesthetic look.

The weathering process takes around 2 to 3 years. Roofinox Tin-matte is typically used on roofs due to the number of builders who do not want a naturally unequal patination, where on the façade this would be impossible to influence.

Roofinox Tin Matte

Roofinox Classic

To accommodate the growing trend of matt surfaces in architecture, the Roofinox Classic surface has been developed, achieving a special light distribution leading to an exquisite matt finish (i.e. very low degree of reflection).

The Roofinox Classic structure is rolled in, making it much more resistant to corrosion and results in an 88% lower gloss level than a standard stainless steel. At the same time, the mechanical properties of the building envelope have been optimized, making Roofinox Classic the preferred material for the craftsman.

Roofinox Classic

Roofinox Stainless Steel Surfaces

Architects and builders are increasingly taking advantage of the many functional and optical advantages of stainless steel surfaces for the roof and façade. All Roofinox stainless steel surfaces are specially created design surfaces. Each one has been designed to meet specific functional and aesthetic requirements.

Aurubis Copper

Aurubis has developed a range of factory applied surface treatments to provide straightaway the various stages of oxidisation and patination. The processes involved are very similar to those taking place over time in the environment and utilise copper mineral compounds, rather than alien chemical treatments. Essentially, they bring forward the environmental changes without removing the integrity of Aurubis copper as a natural, living material.

The natural development of copper patina is one of copper’s unique characteristics. Within a few days of exposure to the atmosphere, the surface of Nordic Standard copper begins to oxidize, changing its color from the “bright” mill finish to a chestnut brown which gradually darkens over several years to a chocolate brown. Continued weathering can then result in development of the distinctive green patina – or blue in coastal locations. The patina film provides remarkable protection against corrosion and can repair itself if damaged, defining the exceptional longevity of copper cladding.

Nordic Standard

Nordic Standard is mill finish copper without any additional surface treatments carried out in the factory. It has the traditional ‘bright’ finish that will develop and change in the environment.

Nordic Standard

Nordic Brown

Nordic Brown products are pre-oxidised at Aurubis’ factory to provide the same oxidised brown surface that otherwise develops over time in the environment. The thickness of the oxide layer determines the colour: Nordic Brown Light and the darker Nordic Brown versions are available. Nordic Brown products are useful to minimise the hand and other construction marks which may occur for a short time after installing ‘bright’ standard copper. Also, light and dark versions can be combined – perhaps with other finishes such as Nordic Standard – to create various visual effects.

Nordic Brown

Nordic Green and Nordic Blue

Nordic Green and Nordic Blue products offer designers design freedom and the ability to determine the type and intensity of green or bluish patina for each project with choices of ‘Living’ surfaces.

The factory process can be accurately controlled so that other intensities of patina flecks can be created, revealing some of the dark oxidised background material. Special individual levels of patination can be developed to meet the design requirements to match historically patinated copper in existing buildings.

The material is easily bent and formed, with no limitations on the length of pre-patinated copper sheet or strip, as the whole coils are treated on the production line, not just limited size sheets. Just like natural patina, Nordic Green and Nordic Blue undergo continuous changes through en­vironmental exposure dependent upon local atmospheric and rainfall conditions.

  • Mineral-Based Green
    The most common compound found in natural patinas all over the world is copper sulfate mineral brochantite. Brochantite is a light blue colour, however many locations impurities and other components in the air add a yellow tint to give the naturally developed patina a green hue. Similarly, Nordic Green is produced with a hint of iron sulfate yellow component added to the blue copper sulfate, replicating the natural green.
  • Mineral-Based Blue
    In marine climates, the natural cooper patina contains come copper chloride, giving it more of a blue colour, emulated with the Nordic Blue. Brochantite is a light blue colour and Aurubis’ Bordic Blue patination is 100% brochantite.

Nordic Brass

Nordic Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc with a distinctive golden yellow colour. When exposed to the atmosphere, the surface begins to darken within weeks and can change to a dark brown in around a year – unlike Nordic Royal™ alloy which retains its original colour.

Nordic Royal

Nordic Royal™ is an alloy of copper with aluminium and zinc, giving it a rich golden through-colour that changeably incorporates a matte, golden-brown surface. It has a thin protective oxide layer containing all three alloy elements when produced. As a result, the surface retains its golden colour and simply loses some of its sheen as the oxide layer thickens with exposure to the atmosphere to give a matt finish.

It behaves differently from other Aurubis cooper products over time and does not develop a blue or green patina. Exceptional cases are coastal and humid regions.
