VMZINC, the largest manufacturer of rolled zinc worldwide, has partnered with Alpolic, producing the Zinc used in Alpolic/fr ZCM when an aluminium composite material (ACM) is required. VMZINC products can be used exclusively as flat Zinc sheeting for façade and external cladding.

Alpolic/fr ZCM, a zinc composite material composed of a chemically weathered VMZINC sheet on the topside, a non combustible mineral filled core and a VMZINC sheet on the back, offers the same benefits of Alpolic including lightweight and rigid characteristics, easy workability and flatness.

Mitsubishi and VMZINC began their partnership in 2009 when they first worked together on the Annette Strauss Artists Square in Dallas, Texas. This project used a combination of Alpolic SMN Silver Metallic and Alpolic Zinc Metal, Quartz in a diamond pattern. The gloss of Alpolic Silver Metallic contrasts strongly against Alpolic Zinc Metal with light reflected by Alpolic Silver Metallic and absorbed by Alpolic Zinc Metal.

SGI Architectural is the only Australian distributor of Quartz-Zinc ACM using genuine VMZINC material.
