Antique Copper Bathtub Properties:
Mother Nature has given copper a seemingly magical quality known as a ‘living finish’. This unique characteristic sets copper apart from most other metals and is the primary reason why a pure antique copper bathtub becomes more beautiful with age!
When left untreated, copper interacts with its environment and naturally deepens in color and tone over time. It begins its journey with a pinkish, salmon-like hue and very gradually darkens in color as it passes through a progression of russet browns until it finally stabilizes to a deep, rich tone.
The speed at which it changes color and the final depth of tone for each antique copper bathtub will differ and is greatly influenced by the amount and type of use it receives and by the prevailing weather patterns in your particular geographical location.
The truth is… pure antique copper bathtubs age gracefully and become even more beautiful with every passing day!

Since you are not the only one who will be using the bathtub in your bathroom hence, it is important to make sure that the material of your tub is antibacterial to prevent the disease transmission that may happen by coming in contact with different human bodies.
Copper is a 100 percent recyclable metal. Nearly 80 percent of the copper that has been mined to date is still in use.
