Creating connections to chimneys, roof dormers and walls with hard roofing materials requires a flexible and malleable material. The sustainable solution is Soft Zinc by RHEINZINK. With its easy folding and normal soft soldering capability, connections become aesthetically pleasing with RHEINZINK Soft Zinc. Available in ready-to-use “smooth” or “pleated” cuts, this environmentally friendly building product is 100 percent recyclable.
RHEINZINK Soft Zinc is an ecologically superior alternative to lead — there are no toxins to seep into soil or water, resulting in 100 percent clean water runoff. Soft Zinc is ideal for all architectural roofing products like slate, clay, profiled tile, metal or any other type of roofing that requires a moldable flashing material that would normally be specified as rolled or sheet lead. In addition, Soft Zinc is cost effective. A 17-pound roll of soft zinc provides the same coverage as a 50 pound roll of lead at a fraction of the cost.
“RHEINZINK Soft Zinc is easy to work with and benefits the environment.” says Nils Simonsen, CEO of MetalTech-USA. “Contractors and installers can save both time and money using Soft Zinc and architects will appreciate its aesthetic qualities. RHEINZINK Soft Zinc is an ideal product for distributors to add to their line, offering an environmentally safe option to lead.”
