RHEINZINK is an architectural-grade zinc with unmatched longevity and elegant appearance, making it an ideal building material. It complies with the strictest environmental standards and is 100% recyclable. For over 40 years, RHEINZINK has been able to claim the title ‘sustainable’ from ‘cradle to grave’ and can be recycled infinitely without the loss of its chemical or physical properties.
RHEINZINK is available in Classic bright rolled, prePATINA blue-grey and prePATINA graphite-grey.

Material with a Future
In the context of the discussion on sustainable construction, the environmental compatibility of building products is given great significance and accordingly influences the making of decisions by building owners and planners when selecting materials. In this focus, in addition to a long life, an important consideration is the expenditure of energy during the manufacture of the material, the recycling rate, and the energy saving to be made as a result of the high recycling rate.
In the case of RHEINZINK the environmental compatibility traditionally has a high value. Ecological yardsticks are already set during the extraction and processing of the raw material: The consumption of energy is extremely low. The most modern of production facilities reduce
emissions to a minimum. RHEINZINK is a 100 % recyclable and sets a yardstick with a life of many decades in use. Its use as a roof covering, facade cladding and roof drainage alone is accorded a high value: Since the consumption of energy in the recycling amounts to only around 5 % of the primary energy content and today in the market for used metals a value of up to 60% of the raw material price for high-purity zinc is achieved, the decision to use RHEINZINK is also of great benefit to future generations. Thanks to the high recycling rate of over 95 % a further reduction of the energy requirement is achieved. In the RHEINZINK manufacturing process production scrap is passed to the melting
process without further pre-handling.
In addition to exemplary ecological characteristics, RHEINZINK is convincing in terms of its aesthetic appearance. It can be delivered in various product lines and versions.
RHEINZINK PATINA is the classic line. The bright rolled version (perPATINA bright rolled) first takes the form of a natural patina in the course of time – due to atmospheric influences. With the preweathered variants prePATINA blue-grey and graphite-grey, the natural material
has on the first day a classical, typical zinc blue-grey or graphite-grey appearance. On the other hand the preweathered variants of this product line change again during the course of the year, the blue-grey and graphite-grey appearance of the RHEINZINK-PROTECT LINE is protected from aging in the longer term by an invisible coating.
