  • Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC (1888PressRelease) March 14, 2012 - CENTRIA, an industry leader in the design, development and manufacture of architectural metal wall and roof systems, recently announced the addition of VMZINC® architectural zinc to use as a material substrate in its Profile Series Concept Series® and IW Series Panels.

    "There is a growing industry trend toward natural metals, like zinc, because of their sustainability and long life-span," said Tom Zombek, product manager, CENTRIA. "By adding a zinc substrate option to our Concept and IW Series panels, we are not only providing architects with more choices within these already versatile product lines, but creating a new option that complements our commitment to creating products that offer outstanding aesthetics, performance and sustainability."

    Norbert Schneider, president of Umicore Building Products USA, which sells the VMZINC manufactured by the global Umicore Group, expressed his pleasure about the partnership:

    "We consider CENTRIA one of the best established brands in the segment of the metalic building envelope and it is a household name in architectural offices around the country," he said. "That means architects will hear about VMZINC from a new and additional source."

    The new zinc panels will be available in a 1mm (.039 inches) thickness with a smooth, non-embossed finish. The panels will be available in five pre-weathered zinc colors from VMZINC, including Quart-Zinc® - Grey, Anthra-Zinc® - Black and Pigmento® - Red, Blue and Green.
