The most sustainable construction zinc in the world

prePATINA becomes prePATINA ECO ZINC with 50% less CO₂

We face the task of drastically reducing CO2 emissions. The EU wants to become climate neutral by 2050. There is no doubt that the construction industry also has a great responsibility. That is why we have firmly integrated sustainability into our corporate strategy. With prePATINA ECO ZINC, we are taking another important step forward on the path of our sustainability strategy. We are using third-party cerified, renewable energy.

The building material of
excellence for sustainable

Small carbon footprint, 100% recyclable, extremely durable, practically maintenance-free – prePATINA ECO ZINC is the perfect building material for current and fusure sustainable construction. The emission in the entire manufacturing process is only 1.85 kg CO2 per kg of zinc. The conversion will save us more than 36,000 tonnes of CO2 per year. By comparison, this is equivalent to the carbon emissions of a small town of 4,500 people.

Pre-weathered in our
manufacturing facility

Our pre-weathering process creates the uniform blue-grey and graphite-grey appearance of the zinc patina.  The underlying prePATINA ECO ZINC alloys allow the natural patina process to continue after installation. The highlight: during the process, the natural surface properties are retained and the surface can be soldered and create a building material with a lifespan of 100 years or more.  Discover the world of fascinating prePATINA surfaces and request your product samples.

Maintenance-free and self-healing.

Thanks to its durability and low-maintenance, prePATINA ECO ZINC also meets all the requirements for sustainable building in the future. Another key advantage is the self-healing effect of the high-quality material. Scratches even out as part of the natural patina process. Environmentally friendly and low-maintenance, our prePATINA ECO ZINC line with its appearance is the perfect surface for a unique aesthetic.
