A silvery-white metal that develops a lovely soft matte finish with age. Zinc can be alloyed with several metals, namely nickel and more essentially, copper to make brass.

Zinc is used for galvanising steel and iron poles to make them rust and weather proof, and in sheets for roofing. Zinc, copper and lead roofs are seamed and welted on site, and can be moulded into any shape and section.

For interior furnishings, whether in sheets or galvanised, zinc can be formed into sinks and basins, curtain poles, doors, screen and gate hinges and balcony railings.
