New Colors Inspired by the Elements

New Colors Inspired by the Elements

This spring, we are using the forces of nature as inspiration for our Elements palette. Variegated tones of steel, copper, bronze, and brass form the foundation of native metals that inspire our new color offerings. Designers can now achieve the look of naturally-weathered steel or aged brass using our lightweight solid-core aluminum materials.

Elements colorways can be paired with perforated, corrugated, or laser cut metal sheets for a unique metal solution inspired by nature.


Natural steel is heavy, expensive and can take up to 40 years to patina. Our Blackened Steel Patina offers instant gratification for interior projects, creating a weathered steel surface that is easy-to-manage in the field and has the value, durability, and color integrity to withstand the test of time.


The color of pure copper features a reddish-orange color that naturally changes over time, eventually turning green. With our Copper hues, color integrity is maintained over time so the eye-catching copper color will never fade, dull or change.


Bronze is an alloy that primarily consists of copper with varying amounts of other ingredients that can impact color integrity. We’ve developed a series of bronze hues that mimic the natural variations in bronze materials and are guaranteed to maintain their color over time.


Brass is an alloy that consists of copper and varying amounts of zinc. The variations in zinc lead to unpredictable color variations over time. Using our unique process, we can create the perfect natural brass hue that is guaranteed to last for years to come.
