Architectural zinc develops its own protective layer, which is called zinc hydroxyl-carbonate. Once it’s formed, that layer blocks moisture and chemicals from penetrating the zinc and, if it’s scratched, the hydroxyl-carbonate will reform over time. In other words, zinc heals itself. That’s why zinc walls and roofs last on average from 80 to 100 years. The Zinc home features Dri-Design VM ZINC panels, which create an unforgettable visual experience. QUARTZ-ZINC makes structures memorable by emulating colors found in nature and infusing a touch of refinement. No sealants, gaskets or butyl tape in the panel joints means no dirty streaks or maintenance. Dri-Design panels are not laminated nor a composite – they will never delaminate. Sustainability – the fact is, composite or foam panels can’t match Dri-design for its environmental footprint. Dri-Design is made with recycled content and is 100% recyclable. Fully tested to ASTM standards for air, water and structural performance. Tested to the latest AAMA 508-07 for pressure equalized rain screens that include passing a 15-pound water test. Unique interlocking panel design makes installation quick and easy.
