All About Zinc Panels

Zinc has been one of the most popular choices for facades, roofing, and cladding. In fact, zinc is quickly becoming a favorite among architects due to its durability, versatility, and manufacturability.


Zinc is considered one of the most durable metals because it can self-heal. This self-healing ability allows for zinc to have one of the most impressive life expectancies. A zinc roof can last around 100 years, while a zinc wall can last around 150 years.

This impressive life expectancy is due to zinc’s incredible weathering resistance. As zinc is exposed to everyday weathering, a protective layer forms on its surface. This protective layer is called a patina, and it prevents zinc from corroding.

Because of the patina, zinc heals itself when scratched or scuffed. Whenever it is scratched, it goes through a process called re-patinating so that the scratched area matches the metal around it. This causes the marks to disappear, making your structure look beautiful and new once again.


Due to the patina, zinc is a highly attractive metal. The patina layer creates a thin layer that looks attractive and classic. Many architects love zinc’s look because of this patina; it makes the structures look classic and timeless.

All the while, the zinc structure never looks tarnished. Although the color does slightly change due to the layer, you don’t see any scratches. This is incredibly ideal since it allows the structure to retain a polished and refined look.

Low Maintenance

Many people opt for zinc panels because of how incredibly low maintenance they are. The self-healing property means that you don’t have to maintain the metal as much yourself. This will save you from needing to apply paint touchups or edge control. Instead, the metal does most of the hard work for you.


Even though zinc is highly durable, it is also soft and pliable. This means that zinc can be formed into just about any shape easily. No matter what design idea you may have, zinc can easily be shaped to fit it beautifully and effectively.
