The benefits of specifying Zinc Composite Material

We provide rainscreen cladding in such a wide range of materials and finishes, that it can often be a difficult decision to know which is best to specify for your project.

By choosing Zinc Composite Material, you can add a number of advantages to your project.

  • One of the most unique features of Zinc Composite Material is that it uses the effect of air and the elements to enhance it’s finish; available in a natural blue grey, as well as numerous other shades, ZCM’s pre-weathered finish means that it matures over time as it’s exposed to the outside, and the natural patina that develops means that scratches and imperfections are virtually unnoticeable.

 

  • Zinc Composite Material is an extremely environmentally friendly choice for your project; it’s a completely non-corrosive product which provides 100% clear water runoff, so if you’re looking to design a building with eco-friendly features, ZCM could be the ideal specification.

 

  • The chemical structure of composite materials means that they are much less likely to be warped, damaged or broken up, even under extremely stressful conditions, making them a safe and reliable choice.

 

  • Composite materials also provide an extraordinary level of design flexibility, as their malleable structure allows them to be moulded into complex shapes and styles; if your design is breaking boundaries, ZCM and other composite materials could be what you need to make it come to life.

 

  • The surface only requires minor cleaning and maintenance over its lifetime.

 

  • ZCM is available for use with a range of our Optima rainscreen cladding systems, including our FC Secret Fix and TFC Through Fix Cassette systems.
