Beaten metal / aluminium / copper

Beaten metal and composition gold – not all that glitters is gold

Beaten metal, beaten aluminium and beaten copper can be used to “gild” interior furniture and large surfaces that are not required to be durable.

We offer the following selection of colours

  • Colour 0 consists of 100% copper
  • Colour 1 consists of 90% copper – 10% zinc
  • Colour 2 consists of 88% copper – 12% zinc
  • Colour 2 1/2 consists of 85% copper – 15% zinc = Mid-gold

Beaten aluminium consists of 100% aluminium

Beaten copper Colour 0 is made from pure copper. Beaten metal is made from a copper-zinc alloy. The raw material for beaten aluminium is pure aluminium. An ingot of the respective metal / alloy is rolled into a strip and then cut into squares. These so-called “quarters” are inserted between special papers and then beaten into thin sheets in a 16 x 16 cm format using gold beating machines.

Please note the sensitivity of beaten copper, beaten metal and composition gold when processing. These metals react to UV radiation, humidity and fluctuating temperatures by oxidising. The metal-coated surfaces must be immediately coated in a protective lacquer.
