elZinc Graphite® is architectural zinc pre-weathered to a very dark, almost black, shade of grey.
Beginning to the fore the cladding´s lines in a refined fashion, it is appreciated for its purity and sobriety.
Combined with other traditional materials such as wood or glass, it allows the creation of stylish and long-lasting facades which maintain their original elegance as time passes by.
The pre-weathered finish is achieved using a non-polluting phosphate treatment that preserves and respects the initial properties of zinc.

- eLZinc Alkimi surface finishes will not crack, blister, peel or chalk
