When a durable, naturally weathering architectural metal roof is called for, FreedomGray is appropriate for use in most applications. With all the characteristics of copper, coated with a proprietary non reflective zinc/tin coating. It requires very little maintenance, as it slowly begins to develop a slightly darker patina. FreedomGray may be used not only for roofs, but also to form most architectural accents, gutters, downspouts and wall cladding. Roofs and flashings using Revere’s patented tin-zinc alloy have been exposed to industrial, seacoast, urban and rural environments without failure. Salt spray, salt fog and other accelerated weathering tests have also had no adverse effects. However, in some marine environments pitting may occur over time. FreedomGray is a practical choice for today’s environmentally conscious clients.
Conventional installation and fabrication techniques, similar to those used for other architectural metals, apply to FreedomGray. Its workability is comparable to zinc. Standard metal forming tools, processing and machinery are employed. FreedomGray can be soldered, and accepts adhesives and sealants well. Copper is available in coil and sheet widths up to 36” wide. Typical thicknesses from .020” to .032”-
Green Building Product
Sustainable materials are key elements of green buildings. Some benefits of sustainable materials include durability, long life, recyclability, and energy and thermal efficiency. Copper and Copper alloys like FreedomGray rank highly in all of these categories.
A Cost Effective Building Material
FreedomGray offers numerous advantages over other finishes. Like all architectural copper, FreedomGray is easy to form, simple to install and durable in most environmental conditions. FreedomGray is competitively priced with other architectural metals.
FreedomGray’s corrosion immunity lowers its installed unit cost. Well-researched designs that exploit its unique attributes and longterm savings from durability and low maintenance make FreedomGray a competitive architectural building material on a lifecycle basis. 25 Year Coastal Warranty.
