Patina Progress Exhibiting a mottled patina over bright new copper, PatriotGreen copper uses a patented process involving a partially applied patina coating. The uncoated copper sections naturally age with exposure to the environment, developing a natural patina while the applied patina fades away, allowing the surface to mature. PatriotGreen is available in sheets and in coils.
