VMZINC® Partner RapidMaterials To Offer 49.2"-Wide Zinc Sheets

VMZINC-Natural-ZincRaleigh, NC – VMZINC®-US, the international brand name of rolled zinc products, has announced the availability of 0.8 mm-thick Natural Zinc sheets in a 49.2" width through RapidMaterials, the company's online retail distribution partner since 2010.

Natural Zinc by VMZINC® is elegant, shiny and smooth when it comes out of the mill. But when installed on the exterior of a building or home, the material weathers and forms a beautifully textured grey patina. The patina’s evolution can take several years to achieve, depending on the location of the panels and other environmental factors.

The standard 39.4" x 120" zinc sheet is equal to one meter in width, whereas the expanded 49.2" x 120" zinc sheet is equal to four feet in width. This size will enable customers to install the sheets more efficiently and reduce overall waste, especially for projects using American units of measurement. This width is particularly useful for interior projects, including countertops, to achieve a flat, seamless aesthetic. VMZINC® was the first zinc manufacturer to offer 49.2"-wide coils in natural zinc.

"We are excited about being able to offer our zinc sheets in this wider width to accommodate projects of all shapes and sizes,” said Daniel Nicely, managing director at VMZINC® -US. “At VMZINC®, we are committed to remaining at the forefront of our industry and to constantly creating innovative solutions – including this sheet width – to further aid architects, builders and installers.”

RapidMaterials is equally pleased to play a role in helping VMZINC bring the new material to market. “We are pleased to be the retailer of this expanded width VMZINC® sheets,” affirmed David Trefzger, manager of RapidMaterials. “These high quality zinc sheets present a wonderful opportunity to our customers seeking a modern, natural material for their larger-surfaced projects, as they not only aid in the installation process, but also reduce the amount of overall waste.”
