Copper Clad Stainless Steel Offered For Gutters & Roofing
Lake Bluff, IL /PRWEB/ - GutterSupply.com, supplier of rain gutter products, has released a new line of CopperPlus (Copper Clad Stainless Steel) gutter and roofing products. CopperPlus is an architectural metal made of stainless steel clad with a copper exterior to combine the beauty of copper with the strength and durability of stainless steel.
Copper remains one of the most sought-after decorative building materials. But as the demand for copper increases, prices have risen. By utilizing the lower cost, and superior qualities of stainless steel, and combining it with the aesthetic beauty of solid copper, CopperPlus is an affordable solution. Because it is made with real copper, CopperPlus patinas with age.
CopperPlus roofing and gutter products are easy to work with. The metal cuts easily using standard tools, including existing gutter machines. The steel core also is said to retain heat better than pure copper, which makes it easier to solder.
By bonding the copper with steel, CopperPlus makes a more durable product. It accepts severe forming and can be formed into intricate shapes. The material can be bent flat on itself without separating the bonded layers or cracking the material. The stainless steel core provides better resistance to metal fatigue and erosion problems. While CopperPlus is soft on the outside, its core is tough.
CopperPlus products are manufactured by roll bonding. This process is based on solid-state welding technology, and uses no adhesive or brazing alloys. The manufacturing process creates a permanent, high integrity bond between the stainless steel and copper layers that makes for a durable product. At GutterSupply.com, CopperPlus products come with a 25 year warranty.
CopperPlus can be used for a wide range of projects, including roofing, gutters and sheet metal fabrication. In additional to selling gutter products made with CopperPlus, GutterSupply.com sells sheets and coils, roof flashings, valleys and other products manufactured with the metal. The company will also fabricate products to meet design specs.
