The most sustainable construction zinc in the world

prePATINA becomes prePATINA ECO ZINC with 50% less CO₂

Mankind faces the task of drastically reducing CO2 emissions. The EU wants to become climate neutral by 2050. There is no doubt that the construction industry also has a great responsibility. That is why we have firmly integrated sustainability into our corporate strategy. With prePATINA ECO ZINC, we are taking another important step forward on the path of our sustainability strategy. Not through compensation, but in real terms with genuine renewable energies.


Genuine renewable energies.

50% less CO2 – as the first manufacturer of construction zinc, RHEINZINK is taking a big step towards decarbonisation in raw material extraction. prePATINA, RHEINZINK‘s product line with the pre-weathered surface, is now prePATINA ECO ZINC. We use the low-carbon zinc of our long-term partner for this purpose. The raw material is produced in Scandinavia with renewable energy. Verifiable and exclusive.

The building material of excellence for sustainable construction.

Small carbon footprint, 100% recyclable, extremely durable, practically maintenance-free – prePATINA ECO ZINC is the perfect future building material for sustainable construction. The emission in the entire manufacturing process is only 1.85 kg CO2 per kg of zinc. The conversion will save us more than 36,000 tonnes of CO2 per year. By comparison, this is equivalent to the carbon emissions of a small town with 4,500 inhabitants.


Pre-weathered ex works.

The pre-weathering process creates the uniform blue-grey appearance of the zinc patina ex works and allows the natural patina process of prePATINA ECO ZINC to take place afterwards. The highlight: during the staining process, the natural surface properties are retained and the surface can still be soldered. For almost infinite longevity of the building material.

Maintenance-free and self-healing.

Thanks to its durability and freedom from maintenance, prePATINA ECO ZINC also meets all the requirements for sustainable building in the future. Another trump card is the self-healing effect of the high-quality material. Installation-related scratches are evened out again as part of the natural patina formation. Environmentally friendly and maintenance-free, the prePATINA line with its effective accents is the perfect surface for a unique building.

Sustainability and RHEINZINK – an exciting relationship.
