elZinc Slate is a pre-patinated matte grey colored zinc which gives a very similar appearance to naturally weathered zinc.
The pre-weathering is created using a non-polluting phosphate treatment that gives the same look that would have been achieved after several years of exposure to the natural elements, while still preserving its initial properties of alloying components at the highest level of purity – 99.99%.
elZinc Slate is used in roofing and cladding, where it coordinates perfectly with other traditional building materials. It is also great for indoors, where a natural patina would take much longer to form. It is especially popular in renovation and restoration projects since its patinated color allows it to blend easily with existing weathered zinc.
