Zinc standing seam roofing
Zintek® is an alloy of zinc, with a minimum fineness of 98.78 and maximum of 99.86, copper and titanium are then included to improve the mechanical properties.
Copper increases the tensile strength, titanium improves resistance, and the combination of the two reduces the expansion coefficient of the alloy.
Moreover, zintek® does not damage the surrounding materials by forming surface stains, which are typical on facades and along guttering lines, because when it is washed by rainwater it does not leave any traces whatsoever.
On contact with water, zintek® creates a basic surface layer of highly stable zinc carbonate, which is extremely resistant to corrosion. Once it has been laid, it does not require any maintenance or protective treatments, providing the building with long lasting preservation.
The colours and surface appearance remain unchanged, to respect the architects planning and aesthetic choices.
Zintek® is a choice that considerably reduces the building costs, and given its unalterable colouring it also satisfies the requirements of the Architectural and Cultural Assets Preservation Board.
