VMZINC PIGMENTO Red Focal Point for Landmark Waterfront Development

Wednesday, August 17, 2011 by VM ZINC®

VMZINC shingles in PIGMENTO red have been used on module 1 of University Campus Suffolk's landmark development at Orwell Quay in Ipswich.

The first of six phases has provided predominantly student accommodation within the rapidly transforming Ipswich Waterfront. The subtle red of the zinc provides a distinctive focal point which, because of its naturally developing patina, will not require recoating.

PIGMENTO colours are chromate-free and achieved by adding mineral pigments to pre-weathered QUARTZ-ZINC®. This preserves the naturally grained texture of pre-weathered zinc without affecting its environmental properties.
