With its dark velvety characteristics, ANTHRA-ZINC® offers a unique VMZINC® stone-like finish that is capable of blending with various materials, such as black slate.
This pre-weathering process involves a surface treatment of Natural Zinc. ANTHRA-ZINC is not a painted product, so the colour variations between batches achieve the intended appearance of stone rather than metal.
As with Natural Zinc, based on the type of installation, surface exposure to weather, and geographical conditions, ANTHRA-ZINC may slowly and gradually lighten over time to dark grey. Superficial surface scratches and marks will be covered by the natural grey patina.
Due to the aspect of ANTHRA-ZINC white marks, that can appear on surfaces that are unexposed to rain or are not regularly rinsed, will be more visible. However, such superficial marks do not reduce the material's lifespan.
While white marks can occasionally appear on zinc surfaces that are unexposed to rain or are not regularly rinsed, such superficial marks do not reduce the material’s lifespan.
All ANTHRA-ZINC materials are delivered with a removable protective film to minimize fingerprints, scratches, and contamination.
