Product features titanium zinc
NedZink produces titanium zinc according to EN 988 & ASTM B69, an alloy based on electrolytically cleaned zinc with a purity of min. 99.995 % Zn (Z1 according to EN 1179) with small additions of the alloy elements copper, titanium and aluminium.
In the KOMO product certificate and the product certificate from Lloyd’s Register, Industrial Quality Scheme for Product Certification by Surveillance of Quality Systems (approval No. QIS 122) the following quality indicators are determined:
- chemical composition
- mechanical and physical properties
- measurement tolerances
Compliance with the set material properties is checked at regular intervals (several times a year) by an independent and neutral control body, Lloyd’s Register. This product certificate and the ISO 9001:2015 certificate for the quality management system at NedZink assure a constant and uniform high quality, meeting our own standards and far exceeding NEN-EN 988.
The materials are provided with a continuous stamp with a mark according to the provisions of NEN-EN 988, mentioning:
- producer NedZink NTZ
- product description in German, Dutch, English and French
- nominal thickness
- batch number
- the year of production
- logos of the control bodies Lloyd’s Register and KOMO (K7054)

Titanium zinc is a sustainable alternative to various other building materials. Today, it is considered one of the most sustainable building materials, which is due to several factors.
Titanium zinc is easy and can be processed with the usual tools of the plumbing trade. Due to its excellent processing properties, the anti-fingerprint coating (AFP) on the factory pre-weathered surfaces and an additional film, the material offers further advantages in terms of surface protection during storage and installation. Furthermore, a long service life can be expected for titanium zinc. For roofs, the service life is approx. 70 years and for façade systems, even up to 100 years can be assumed. Even, for gutters and drainage systems, 30 to 50 years can be assumed.
Furthermore, titanium zinc has an excellent environmental balance. This is because titanium zinc makes a small contribution in terms of greenhouse gases, CO2 and acidification of the atmosphere. Due to its relatively high residual material value, zinc is also highly recycled, which also contributes to its environmental friendliness. Other advantages are:
- High resistance to temperature changes
- Zinc is self-healing – Zinc builds up a self-healing patina layer.
- NedZinc for aesthetic applications – Due to its uniform, natural and lively appearance, the material combines well with other building materials.
- Easy to process
