Zinc

Features

  • Composed of very high quality zinc (at least 99% pure) alloyed with copper and titanium to make it harder and stronger, increasing both mechanical and creep resistance.
  • Lifespan of 50–80 years, depending on exact location.
  • Continues to develop a natural protective layer (or patina) as it ages, self-repairing any marks and scratches throughout its lifetime.

Benefits

  • Highly malleable in shape and versatile in style, it can match unique architectural visions and building challenges.
  • Very high fire rating and non-combustible.
  • Self-healing properties boost corrosion resistance for longer life and incredible durability.
  • Virtually no maintenance.
  • Non-toxic, natural material that is 100% recyclable without any loss of chemical or physical properties.
  • Uses less water and energy in production than most other building materials, helping towards green star ratings and ideal for sustainable developments.

Boasting outstanding durability and design freedom, we use the highest quality zinc provided by two world leaders: VM ZINC from France and RHEINZINK from Germany.
