KME is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of Copper and Copper alloy products. The company produces a range of copper-based architectural products for roofing and cladding applications.
KME’s TECU® Classic copper sheet and coil are manufactured in state-of-the-art production facilities (to standard EN 1172) and KME’s own strict guidelines. Made from CU-DHP – oxygen which is oxygen-free, phosphorus-deoxidised copper with limited residual phosphorus. KME copper is extremely malleable, regardless of temperature or rolling direction.
After installation, the bright shine of copper develops a matt, dark brown surface due to natural weathering and oxidation. This showcases copper’s unmistakable warmth and eventually gives way to a mix of brown shades and sometimes purplish hues.
