Umicore’s zinc as a building material is an alloy. It is 99.995% pure zinc, produced by an electrolytic process, alloyed with traces of copper and titanium added in controlled quantities. These elements reduce brittleness when cold and increase creep resistance.
Maximum surface temperatures:
- QUARTZ ZINC - 176°F
- ANTHRA ZINC - 190°F
VMZINC products sold in North America meet the ASTM B69-11 Standard Specification for Rolled Zinc.
Zinc PLUS option
PLUS means that a 60 µm (2.36mil) thick coating is applied to the back side for installation on non-compatible supports. VMZ Zinc Plus is available for all surface colors. It resists to an abrasion of 140 liters when tested in accordance with ASTM D 968.
