elZinc®: a quality brand

The use of the best technologies available on the market allows us to offer quality products that exceed the requirements of standard EN 988 and ASTM B69 within which are established the specifications for flat-rolled products of zinc alloys for use in building.

The alloy is produced from zinc of the highest quality (Z1>99.995%)  to which precisely controlled quantities of copper (Cu) and titanium (Ti) are added to improve the zinc’s properties, according to the European standard UNE-EN 1179.  The alloy´s purity is closely monitored by a series of finely regulated controls.


elZinc runs strict quality control testing on all of its rolled zinc products.

Quality Analysis

Through the optimization of the rolling process’ operating parameters and meticulous temperature control during all of the various production stages, elZinc® has developed a product of excellent quality suitable for different applications in building.

The rigorous Quality Controls continuously conducted by our own laboratories and by prestigious independent experts maintain and attest to the Quality of our material.

elZinc’s products are characterized by:
