ZX Panel® aluminium cladding is made from lightweight aluminium with a powder-coated paint finish resulting in a highly durable, corrosion-resistant aluminium cladding system with low maintenance and cost required. Aluminium will not rot, delaminate or break down in the same way that natural materials can. It is incredibly durable and more corrosion resistant than steel as it forms a thin oxide-layer over scratches to prevent weather damage.
ZX Panel® is delivered ready to go and can be installed in wet weather as there is no risk of moisture absorption or painting needed. To maintain the ZX Panel® aluminium cladding system you only need to clean surfaces every 6 months under normal conditions, however every 3 months is recommended in sea-side locations. Standard dishwashing liquid and water is fine.
As powder coating is one of the most durable colour coatings available it provides you with many years of excellent service, with minimal effort. If you do need to replace panels for any reason, it is easy to do so as panels can be individually removed, meaning you won’t have to repair an entire wall.
In terms of environmental impact, other than oxygen and silicone, aluminium is the most abundant element in the world and has one-third the density and stiffness of steel. It is amongst the most environmentally friendly metals on the planet and is the most recycled of any industrial metal. Of the more than 1 billion tonnes of aluminium ever produced, roughly 75% of this versatile and lightweight metal is still in use today, due to recycling.
