Composition of Rheinzink zinc

Rheinzink is a patented alloy of high-grade fine zinc and small amounts of titanium and copper. This unique alloy, together with Rheinzink's stringent manufacturing parameters, give the product specific material properties.

  • Rheinzink is characterized by very high ducility when subjected to all kinds of forming and can be folded 180 degrees without incipient cracking.
  • Rheinzink has high creep resistance.
  • The crystallization limit of the alloy composition is greater than that of unalloyed zinc, giving superior results in soldering.
  • In comparison with unalloyed zinc, the temperature expansion coefficient is reduced.


With the effects of weathering, the surface of Rheinzink develops a protective layer, the patina, which gives it a high resistance to corrosion. Rheinzink may be purchased in its natural bright rolled finish, or pre-weathered to a mellow blue-grey or a darker graphite grey.

While zinc has long been used for roofing prestigious traditional buildings, its appearance is equally well-suited to our modern technological world.


  • Brochures with detailed product information and technical manuals and CDs illustrating application techniques are available on request.
  • Rheinzink consultants are available for technical back-up and project-specific advice.
  • Edgeform Metals hosts the mobile Rheinzink training school each year at a local venue.
    Training courses are offered at all levels in the medium of English.
