Abstract: In Europe, zinc has been used successfully as a cladding for more than 200 years. In the United States, we have taken the European technology and attempted to improve time-tested performance and longevity by modifying and streamlining installation methods. However, we have done so by pushing the material's limits and creating hybrid installations no longer embodying age-old installation practices.
