Description

The VMZ Sine Wave is a corrugated profile in zinc that can be fixed to a wooden or a metal framework. Along with face fixed VMZ Composite sheets this is one of the few VMZ facade systems that relies on visible fasteners. The standard profile for the panel is an 18/76 mm module which is available in both 0.8 and 1 mm thicknesses. The system can be used to clad walls both horizontally and vertically.

Advantages:

  • Offers a more industrial aesthetic.
  • Very simple installation.
  • Cost effective.
  • Available in all finishes.

Product Options

Finish:

- ANTHRA-ZINC:

  • Visible grain matches the colour of slate.
  • Produced through a phosphatation of mill finish natural zinc.
  • Acceptable tolerance of: Y =5 to 7.
  • Includes a thin organic coating with a tolerance of shininess of 6 to 10.

Due to the dark colour of ANTHRA-ZINC it should be carefully considered before using on non-rinsed surfaces such as protected facades and soffits.

- AZENGAR:

  • Engraved zinc giving a product with a matt, heterogeneous and light aspect.
  • Can be used in the same fashion as other VMZINC products for both roofs and facades and is available in PLUS coating.

- NATURAL-ZINC:

  • Also known as mill finish or bright. Has a shiny metallic appearance when new and develops a patina naturally over time. In facade applications, it may take 10 years for the matt grey patina to form.
  • Due to the dark colour of ANTHRA-ZINC it should be carefully considered before using on non-rinsed surfaces such as protected facades and soffits.

- PIGMENTO:

  • Natural product that enables the texture of the QUARTZ-ZINC to still be seen whilst offering the designer the choice of colour to complement other elements of a building's facade or roof.
  • Colouration is achieved with a special pigmento layer that enhances the qualities of the zinc without presenting a block colour. Does not contain chromate.
  • Tested to EN 13523-10:2010 for UV-humidity and EN 15523:2001 for colour stability and requires minimum maintenance.

- QUARTZ-ZINC:

  • Appearance and texture that does not change over time.
  • When scratched, will self-heal.
  • Grey tones designed to blend well with existing construction materials.
  • Produced through a phosphatation of mill finish natural zinc.
  • Acceptable tolerance of QUARTZ-ZINC, Y = 22 to 25. Darkness of the pre-weathered zinc is measured electronically using a Y figure where 0 is black and 100 is white.
