Elevate Your Designs with hammering and Grain Structure Sheet metal Finishes
Australian Metals is proud to introduce groundbreaking sheet metal finishes for the architectural market, starting from 2024. Our significant investments in process and plant technologies allow us to offer hammering and grain structure finishes initially for copper and brass, extending to any material up to 1200mm wide and a maximum thickness of 1.6mm. The application of mechanical deformation results in distinctive peaks and troughs, creating visually stunning surfaces.
Versatility in Design – From Copper and Brass to Any Material
Responding to market demands, our finishes can now be applied to a wide range of materials. Whether it’s copper, brass, or any material up to 1200mm wide, we’ve got you covered. Additionally, we can complete patterns in coil form upon request, providing unparalleled design flexibility for architects and designers.
Exploring Design Variables with Patina Finishes
Dive into the world of design possibilities with our patina finishes. We offer options such as applying a patina and utilizing scotch bright removal for a balanced look. This technique achieves an aged brass appearance in low spots while retaining the appeal of a newer finish on high spots. Stay tuned for upcoming displays showcasing these design variables.
Powder coat Finish on Aluminium for Ultimate Customization
Take your designs a step further by choosing hammering finishes on aluminum. Once applied, the sheet can receive a powder coat finish in any colour of your choice. This not only enhances the visual appeal but also provides a textured surface, allowing you to achieve the exact look your project demands.
Cost-Efficient Luxury – Revolutionizing Sheetmetal Pricing
Our new application technology is not only innovative but also focused on affordability. While traditional hammering finish sheets cost thousands with weeks upon weeks lead times, we are excited to offer options for as little as a couple of hundred dollars per sheet with fast turnaround. Experience the luxury of high-end finishes without breaking the bank.

Common materials for pattern application
Aluminum: Lightweight and corrosion-resistant, ideal for various architectural applications.
Steel: Known for its strength, durability, and versatility in structural and decorative uses.
Stainless Steel (specific cases only due to material hardness): Offers corrosion resistance, making it suitable for architectural elements in challenging environments.
Copper: Distinctive for its aesthetics and corrosion resistance, often used in roofing and decorative features.
Brass: A combination of copper and zinc, known for its gold-like appearance, corrosion resistance, and malleability.
Galvanized Steel: Coated with zinc for corrosion resistance, commonly used in outdoor structures.
Corten Steel: Developing a weathered, rust-like appearance over time, often utilized in outdoor sculptures and architectural elements
Unleash your creativity with Australian Metals, where we go beyond standard finishes. We proudly offer customization, bringing your unique patterns to life. Our advanced technology empowers us to recreate intricate designs on sheet metal, ensuring your vision becomes a reality. While custom designs may incur higher costs on an individual basis, the scalability of our process makes it remarkably cost-effective for larger projects of 100m2 plus
Can we fold this material?
This material can certainly be folded, our tests were completed on a pan brake, using brass of 1mm thickness, specifically to note the hammering pattern results in a stretch scenario on external corners
