Build On The Dependability Of Zinc
Jarden Zinc maximizes the many benefits and features of zinc that make it desirable for residential and commercial building projects. Since zinc is corrosion resistant, enables a wide range of thermal expansion and is a fungistat, it is ideal for applications that require long-lasting durability in the building product industry. The ductility, malleability and soldering capabilities of zinc strip are ideal for both form and function. Another advantage of zinc is its cost-effectiveness in comparison to other materials such as copper and brass.
Zinc strip’s applicability reaches beyond the products below. Our product development team, with years of industry expertise, can work with customers to provide solutions.

Zinc Supplies For
Metal corner beads provide clean and straight protection for drywall corners. Zinc corner beads are a low-cost and corrosion resistant option. They provide a high-quality, durable finish and can be easily installed.
Expansion joints accommodate movement due to temperature changes without damaging sections between drywall in both commercial and residential buildings. Zinc is one of the best materials to accommodate a relatively large range of expansion and contraction.
Terrazzo strip is used for aesthetic appeal and durability. Our material is often used as the skeletal framework to the floor layout enabling intricate designs and transitions between colors. Zinc strip ensures lasting durability in areas with temperature fluctuations as it allows for a wide range of thermal expansion / contraction.
Flashings are thin pieces of impenetrable material installed to prevent the passage of water into a joint. Jarden Zinc’s alloy 505 was developed specifically for the flashing industry. The malleability of this alloy approaches that of lead. Zinc is known to be corrosion-resistant and a fungistat.
Guttering systems produced from zinc are durable and long-lasting for various environmental conditions. Zinc gutters and downspouts have a classic look that will supply a lifetime of water remediation needs. Zinc has particularly been popular in Europe for 150 years.
Moss Prevention Strips
Moss prevention zinc strip enhances roof durability by preventing the discoloration and decay caused by moss, algae, fungus and mold. It can be easily installed on most roof types. As rain water runs along the length of the roof, zinc carbonate produced from the strip, washes across the roof, and inhibits mold growth.
Stain Glass Came
Historically, zinc has been the preferred choice for stain glass framing. Zinc is easily soldered. It is also more rigid than lead allowing a window to be more structurally stable.
Zinc strip has been used for escutcheon plates such as faucet plates, shower head back plates and shower cover plates. With zinc, various plated finishes can be applied. It is more cost-effective than brass or stainless steel.
