Natural Copper house numbers and letters are water-jet cut from flat sheets of copper alloy C11000 (60-75% recycled) in the various thicknesses mentioned in the table above. The faces of these pieces are then brushed or polished. The returns are bead-lasted.
For the final step, the pieces are clear-coated and baked with a glossy 2-part hardened acrylic polyurethane clear coat.
Polished Copper requires (for polishing) that the piece have either welded or traditional studs. Our polished copper pieces in 1/8" stock are available in sizes 3"+ and are priced with welded studs. NOTE: In thicknesses 1/4"+ our polished finish is only available for numbers or letters 2" high or greater.
NOTE: Brushed or Polished Copper address numbers are not suitable for a continuous new copper color/look in high moisture areas, such as constant moisture from a garden sprinkler, or for salt-water, marine environments. Over time, these pieces will turn the traditional old copper green after the deterioration of the polyurethane overcoat. For a continuous new copper hue, consider our Fabricated Copper colored Titanium-Coated Stainless Steel for your beach address.
