American Standard’s Blackened Bronze Spices Up the Bath


American Standard’s Blackened Bronze
Spices Up the Bath

LAS VEGAS, KITCHEN/BATH INDUSTRY SHOW (May 8, 2007) — Cajun seasoning has nothing on American Standard’s newest finish, Blackened Bronze, which meets demand for one of the hottest trends going in plumbing fixtures—darker, warmer hues.

Blackened Bronze is a dark, consistent finish that is richer and more matte than a traditional oil-rubbed bronze finish. It is also easier to clean and has a rugged, highly durable, yet elegant finish that is warm-looking.

“Blackened Bronze is our answer to consumers who want a finish that is more durable than oil-rubbed bronze,” says Gray Uhl, design director at American Standard. “Oil-rubbed bronze is a living finish, which means it changes over time and can even be rubbed off, which isn’t always desirable. This finish is between an oil-rubbed bronze and wrought iron and complements both perfectly.”

Blackened Bronze is available on American Standard’s newest collections of faucets including Copeland™.
