Melting and casting

Production of the Ti-Zn-Cu alloy and 12-ton, 8 mm lap thick master coils.

Rolling

Master coils are rolled on a reversible, four-high mill to produce the desired thickness.

Cutting and packing

Sheets and coils are cut to the final width and length and packed for shipment.

Main advantages

  • Durability: elZinc® has a very long life. One of the most important characteristics of zinc is that it is very resistant to atmospheric corrosion. The patina that develops on its surface after a short time is self-healing, ensuring the material´s attractive appearance lasts for decades.
  • Sustainibility:Zinc is one of the few materials used in construction that can be recycled indefinitely without losing its physical and chemical characteristics.
  • Malleability: elZinc® conforms to practically any shape including bends and complex geometric forms. This gives architects great freedom in their designs.

  • Appearance: elZinc® is a contemporary material which is perfectly suited to all types of architecture, both in classical and modern.
  • Variety: elZinc® offers a huge variety of surface aspects which creates a vast number of design possibilities.
