Zinc is all around us and is an integral part of nature.
Most rocks and many minerals contain zinc in varying degrees. It also exists naturally in the air, water and soil.
Zinc is also essential to human health and all living organisms. Titanium Zinc is a non-poisonous and environmentally sound product. It does not contain impurities that could be set free under atmospheric conditions or produce toxic fumes in the case of a fire.
Titanium Zinc takes much less energy to refine than other materials.
The energy required to produce zinc from ore is 1/4 that of aluminium and 1/2 that of copper and stainless steel.
Titanium Zinc is 100% Recyclable.
When Titanium Zinc products come to the end of their useful life, they can be re-smelted. Due to high metal content and ease of replacement, zinc scrap has a high value and is practically 100% recyclable. Recycled zinc is used in varying products and forms of production throughout the world, reducing costs and energy through recycling instead of refining new zinc ores.
Titanium Zinc is extremely long-lasting.
The industrialization of zinc began in Europe in the late 18th Century and many buildings still have their original zinc roofs. Zinc’s longevity is directly linked to its environment.
It is easy to see why Titanium Zinc is a sound decision for both the environment and the longevity of your building.
