Zinc strip is an ideal material for use in gutters, down spouts, flashings, and other Raingoods applications. Zinc strip is very ductal and can be readily formed into a variety of shapes and welded into tubes. Zinc is environmentally friendly, and with a low density of 0.259 Lbs/ in3 it is an ideal replacement for lead in flashings.
Zinc has a natural blue-gray patina that forms with time to give the products a pleasing look that will last a lifetime. The self-healing characteristics will naturally consume nicks and scratches minimizing the need for ongoing maintenance.
Alloy 700 (ZnCuTi) meets or exceeds the requirements of European specification EN988, and has been used for years in Raingoods applications worldwide.
