How long will the color last? How is the color achieved?
- LIC Stainless: The color is created through light interference. No pigment is added so neither U.V. nor time will affect the color. We warrant the material for 25 years provided our maintenance requirements are strictly followed.
- TiNi Stainless: Color is achieved by vapor deposition: various nitrides are plasmatised to fuse to the stainless. Interior and exterior installations of our product have shown no change in color. We warrant the material for 25 years provided our maintenance requirements are strictly followed.
- ZALMAG®: The finish weathers from an engaging silver color to an attractive bluish gray tone. We warrant the ZALMAG® material for 25 years provided our maintenance requirements are strictly followed.
What colors do you offer?
- LIC Stainless Steel: Natural, Pewter, Bronze, Blue, Slate, Bronze Gold, Burgundy, Purple/Blue, Peacock, Blue/Green, Charcoal (#4 polish)
- TiNi Stainless Steel: Imperial Gold & Permanent Copper
- ZALMAG®: Natural, Pre-Patina II, Black
How do you justify the color range in your LIC products?
Due to the nature of the LIC process and raw materials, our products will always have natural variation in color. We use an LAB-measuring device to quantify the colors of our products. We offer a range in color based on repeatable tolerances within each color.
Why do you say ZALMAG is “The Solution to Zinc”?
At a fraction of the price of Zinc, ZALMAG® is easier to install and will patina to a soft gray over time just like Zinc.
ZALMAG® can also be installed in cold temperatures without becoming brittle like Zinc would. The addition of Aluminum and Magnesium allows you to install the material directly to you substrate. There is no need for a rain screen system to allow air and water behind the panels like traditional zinc products require.
We also offer a ZALMAG® finish that will immediately give you the look of Zinc: Pre-Patina II and Black.
Can I mix stainless and Zalmag?
No, mixing stainless steel and ZALMAG® can cause galvanic corrosion and rust.

Is there a price difference between the “Cupped” and “Flat” tiles?
