The beauty and magic of ZALMAG® is that every application is different. Depending on the temperature, humidity, and alkalinity of your location, the patina process can start at different rates (days to years) adding visual interest and character at every step of the journey. ZALMAG® makes any architectural application a living transformation project.
ZALMAG® surfaces (Natural, Pre-Patina II, and Black) will age in a random order to grey tones. Grey-to-white marks can appear on ZALMAG®’s surfaces; these marks do not adversely affect the material’s lifespan but add to it’s forever-changing characteristic. ZALMAG® reacts to the environment, handling, installation, and equipment pressure. Due to the nature of ZALMAG®, it will self-heal cuts and perforations and it will naturally patina based on handling and the surrounding environment.
