VMZINC®

NO SEALANTS, GASKETS OR BUTYL TAPE IN THE PANEL JOINTS MEANS NO DIRTY STREAKS OR MAINTENANCE.

VMZINC® Series Panels pull from the distinctive tones and textures of nature to create an exclusive, refined and unforgettable visual experience. Our VMZINC® panels are available in QUARTZ-ZINC®, ANTHRA-ZINC®, AZENGAR® and PIGMENTO® Series colors.

Installation Consideration

Substrate

A substrate must be used behind the Dri-Design Wall Panel System. Options include: 5/8” plywood, DensGlass Gold® and exterior grade gypsum board. Plywood will hold a fastener, however, if DensGlass Gold® or exterior grade gypsum board is utilized, a flat strap or hat girt is required.

Weather Barriers

A weather barrier is required for all Dri-Design installations. Your specific design details will determine if the barrier should be breathable or not. Please call us at 616-355-2970 or e-mail sales@dri-design.com with any questions regarding your specific project.

Fasteners

We recommend stainless steel fasteners for use with neoprene or plastic washers.

Signs, Lighting, and Handrails

Proper reinforcements must be installed behind the panels when attaching objects such as signs, lights and railings. DO NOT attach anything directly to the panels.

Fingerprints

Due to human chemical makeup, fingerprints are quite visible on zinc. Gloves and long sleeve shirts should be worn during installation.

To remove fingerprints, we recommend cleaning the zinc immediately with a mineral oil. Not all mineral oils are compatible with zinc, so we suggest you only use oils approved for VM ZINC®.

Review www.vmzinc-us.com/Maintenance_Cleaning.aspx for further cleaning instructions.

Scratches

If a scratch appears, the zinc will heal itself over time. For extremely deep scratches, the affected panel will likely require replacement.

Zinc and Other Metals

There are no issues with zinc in combination with metals other than copper and mild steel. In general, water should not be allowed to run from a higher to a lower potential metal.
