Furthermore, environmental quality in building approaches or guidelines generally apply to the overall performances of the architectural system rather than:


  • the individual performance of each product that is part of the system,
  • performance with regard to each of the specific targets.


Using VMZINC products contributes to environmental quality in building because it can result in improving the overall environmental performance of a building:


Using VMZINC products contributes to the reduction of greenhouse gases and the protection of energy resources because the amount of energy required to manufacture rolled zinc products from ore is the lowest in the market for metals (such as copper, aluminium or stainless steel) used in building.


Using VMZINC products contributes to limiting the consumption of ore reserves because zinc is a natural material, which is potentially 100% recyclable. As a result, in Europe for example, 90% of old rolled zinc is recovered and re-used in various zinc applications.


Furthermore, the long life span of rolled zinc due to the self-protection principle of zinc also contributes to limiting the consumption of ore reserves.


Using VMZINC products contributes to limiting pollution factors on the building site because rolled zinc installation is quick and does not pollute as it generates very little scrap material and very little waste.

Zinc, a top performing alloy

Composition of alloy

VMZINC rolled zinc is alloyed with copper and titanium to produce a material with optimum mechanical and physical characteristics for building applications, particularly with regard to mechanical resistance and creep resistance.

It is composed of very high quality zinc Z1 (99,995% pure zinc), as defined by the EN 1179 standard, to which titanium and copper are added in order to obtain rolled zinc according to the European standard EN 988. Copper increases the mechanical resistance of the alloy, making it harder and stronger.   This standard imposes very stringent specifications for the composition of rolled zinc and its physical, mechanical and dimensional characteristics, which make it an international reference. Titanium increases creep resistance permitting greater thermal expansion and contraction, of the material without causing metal fatigue.

EN988 norm

The European Standard EN 988 has been applied since 1997 in 18 European countries. This standard imposes very stringent specifications for the composition of rolled zinc and its physical, mechanical and dimensional characteristics, which make it an international reference.


Physical properties of titanium zinc by VMZINC
Density
7.2 kg/dm³
Thermal expansion coefficient (parallel to the rolling direction)0.022 mm/m/°C
Melting point420°C
Recrystallization point300°C
Heat conductivity110 W/(m.K)
Electrical conductivity17 MS/m
Danger of sparkingNon-sparking
Magnetic propertiesDiamagnetic


Whilst the VMZINC brand complies with all the specifications of the EN 988 standard, we have gone beyond the requirements of this standard to create the PREMIUMZINC quality system. It offers an even higher level of quality than EN 988 certification.

Malleability

Architects have unlimited creativity which can be perfectly expressed with VMZINC. The material can therefore adopt any shape and adapted to all types of buildings. It can be bent to fit curves with low radiuses and form complex shapes which are difficult to realize with other materials. 

VMZINC provides the freedom to craft architectural masterpieces which are difficult to create with other construction materials. It is very malleable and can therefore meet virtually every architectural demand and provide solutions that less flexible materials cannot. Architects appreciate this versatility which allows them great freedom of expression when designing a building.
