When buying copper kitchen and bath products, the supplier you choose makes all the difference. It is important to trust that your supplier upholds the highest quality standards because the best copper products are made with both quality construction and artisan technique. The naturally rich look of a Premier Copper Products sink is achieved by heat-setting, or tempering, the copper to a patina finish. The patina is a living finish that will endlessly regenerate throughout the life of the product with regular use and simple maintenance. Poorly manufactured copper sinks achieve color with chemical treatments and sealants that are not easily maintained over time. With Premier Copper Products it’s easy to know that the products they offer meet the highest standards combined with innovative yet functional designs.
No. Premier Copper Products operates the factory that produces the products we sell, and we maintain a strict quality control program that guarantees no lead is used. We have an on-going relationship with the artisans that craft these fine copper products, and these artisans have the highest reputations. Be assured that Premier Copper Products does not add lead to their copper to reduce the cost of material.
Unless the copper product is exposed in an outdoor environment for decades, it will not turn green. The finish will maintain a beautiful quality with proper care for a lifetime. Copper has an endless ability to regenerate the patina finish. Customers need not be concerned with the pale green patina seen on outdoor fixtures and landmarks. Copper does not rust. See our Care Instructions for further details.
Copper is not only beautiful, it is easier to care for, more durable, and more health-conscious than other materials. A mild soap and soft cloth are the only cleaning necessary, and occasional wax will ensure the luster of the finish. Because copper is naturally antibacterial and antimicrobial, no disinfecting is necessary. See our Care Instructions for further details.
Premier Copper Products offers a color matched, neutral cure silicone for installing copper sinks and drains that provides impressive adhesion. This silicone is used to seal the seam between the countertop and sink as well as between the sink and drain. It provides a clean look and pleasing overall installation for your customer. As a best practice, do not use plumber’s putty to install the drain. The result is an unsightly white ring that will spoil the aesthetic beauty of the copper fixture.
