Our Zinc countertops are constructed using 16-20 ga.zinc sheeting. The Zinc sheeting
is formed around a substrate and laminated in place using a special adhesive and
vacuum press technology. Zinc, in it's polished state, is a silver color similar
to stainless steel, but it will rapidly oxidize creating a rich, monochromatic patina.
The top can be polished at any time (10 days or ten years after installation), to
return the top to it’s original pristine state, but the oxidation process will start
over again, therefore, many of our clients prefer the top be left to oxidize naturally.
These tops can be utilized with drop-in, self-rimming sinks, select undermount and
farm sinks, and integrally formed and welded copper sinks. Maximum width of the material
without a seam is 44". Maximum length, before a field seam would be necessary, would
be 9’6”". Backsplashes can be supplied as separate pieces, or integrally formed into
the countertop under certain circumstances. Other uses would include fireplace surrounds
and decorative wall panels.
