Why Use elZinc on Your Projects?
elZinc coils and sheets may be purchased directly through MetalTech-USA. They are available in the natural finish as well as two preweathered finishes and 6 Rainbow colors. The advantages of using zinc in the construction sector are numerous:
Durability: elZinc has a very long life. One of the most important characteristics of zinc is that it is highly resistant to atmospheric corrosion. The patina that appears on the surface after exposure has a self-protecting effect giving the material a beautiful appearance which lasts for decades.
Environment: Zinc is one of the few materials used in construction that can be recycled indefinitely without losing its physical and chemical characteristics.
Malleability: Zinc conforms to practically any shape including bends and complex geometric forms. Architects have great freedom in their designs.
Style: Zinc is a contemporary material which is perfectly suited for all types of construction both in classical and modern architecture.
Variety: elZinc offers a huge variety of surface finishes, allowing vast application possibilities.
elZinc sheets and coils are distinguished by:
- Maleability, irrespective of the rolling direction
- High stability once formed
- Electrofusion optimal performance due to low surface oil.
- Limited low temperature brittleness
All rolled products by elZinc exceed the requirements set by the ASTM B69-13 standard for rolled architectural zinc and the EN988 standard.
