How Zinc Changes Colour Over Time

Our Natural Zinc Rainwater system initially arrives a bright silver, the metal slowly, over time, turns into a darker shade similar to lead, making it a great choice for period properties, but also adds character to more contemporary buildings.

You should not try to impede the transformation. Sacrificing the outer layer to oxidisation creates a hard shell that protects the metal at the core.

This is why Natural zinc and the 'pre-weathered coloured' Quartz Zinc lasts so long even in harsh, coastal and industrial environments.
