Building and Construction

From EcoCopper™ roofing on a LEED certified home to MicroGuard™ door handles and handrailing for hospitals, PMX offers a wide range of green building materials for all types of public and residential buildings.

We do not use any hazardous metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic or hexavalent chromium in our copper alloys. We use a very sustainable process to protect the health and safety of our employees and to mitigate environmental impacts. All of our copper scrap is recycled. Depending on the alloy, our building materials contain between 35% and 100% of recycled content.

As the green building trend continues to grow so do the applications for PMX building materials. Owners, developers, and building professionals count on our copper materials to improve the ecological footprint of their projects.

Manufacturers of building hardware, plumbing fixtures, and lighting use PMX alloys to produce quality products with tighter tolerances and less waste. Product manufacturers know that our copper materials resist corrosion, are easy to fabricate, and available in many colors, textures and finishes.

Architectural applications requiring attractive, durable materials use our EcoCopper building materials to meet performance specifications and green building objectives. Sustainable buildings start with sustainable building materials.

Increasing concern about preventing infections and reducing microbial contamination has made our new MicroGuard antimicrobial alloys the best choice for touch surfaces in hospitals, schools, shopping malls, and other public spaces. Germs and bacteria have become synonymous with a danger people want to eliminate from their surroundings.

PMX copper plate alloys are also used in the construction of power generation plants, desalination plants, and in offshore platforms. In both new construction and retrofit projects, PMX building materials offer many options in the design of enduring structures.

LEED Credit

Depending on the application, PMX copper alloys may contribute to earning LEED credits for materials with high recycled content.

MicroGuard antimicrobial materials are perfect for elevators and handrailing in healthcare facilities and other public buildings.
