Copper Patina Tiles
Types and Process of Copper Patina
There are three major styles of copper patina
tiles: aqua copper, Rojo copper, and bronze copper. Each of these
has distinctive and striking visual appeal. Rojo and bronze copper
patina tiles have chaotic geometric shapes naturally formed during
the oxidation process. While the aqua copper tile gives the sense
of water flowing over it. Aqua copper patina has regions of bright
turquoise among regions of brown.
Copper patina occurs when copper reacts to
the oxygen in the air, called oxidation, which yields a new material
called copper oxide. This copper oxide is of varying degrees,
depending on the oxygen content in the air and the purity of the
copper. These differences lend to a great variety of patterns
and color intensity.
Tiles made from copper patina are corrosion
resistant, and will stand the test of time, while giving that
classic old world look. If you use copper patina tiles in your
house you will be the most unique, sophisticated, and yet classy
home owner you will know.
