RHEINZINK architectural zinc

RHEINZINK titanium zinc is the ideal versatile, lasting, ecological choice

Zinc is a very versatile metal and has been used in construction for decades.  The titanium zinc produced by RHEINZINK offers superior results in all applications. RHEINZINK titanium zinc consists of 99.995% pure primary zinc with a small portion of titanium and copper making it an extremely malleable, long-lasting and corrosion-resistant alloy.

Design freedom and enhanced beauty

RHEINZINK titanium zinc allows for a freedom in design that is not always possible with other materials. The RHEINZINK alloy composition gives the material the necessary strength while also allowing the product to be easily shaped and configured.

The material can be fabricated into complicated details to fit a multitude of shapes. RHEINZINK titanium zinc has a dramatic appearance that enhances the entire building no matter where it is used. RHEINZINK products are so versatile and durable that they are ideal for clad metal roofing, facade cladding, roof drainage, dormers, gable, cladding metal panels, and balcony and chimney cladding. Even less prominent elements such as roof edges, awnings and wall copings also exhibit a new brilliance with RHEINZINK titanium zinc.

Sustainability with low-to-no maintenance

Virtually all titanium zinc can be recycled an infinite amount of times. And the recycling process uses very little energy and creates no polluting residue. Over time, a protective patina develops on the surface of the zinc that gives it an incredibly long service life, adding to the sustainability of zinc. There are historical buildings all over the world with zinc roofs over 100 years old that are completely intact with minimal maintenance performed over the years.  At RHEINZINK we’re committed to sustainability and every RHEINZINK product we make today consists of 30% secondary material. We have more information about the sustainability of zinc and our sustainability efforts available upon request.
