Custom Preweathered Zinc Patina
Hunter Zinc™ is a custom patinated surface developed by Zahner as an alternative to uniform preweathered zinc surfaces readily available on the market. One of many custom patinas in development at Zahner, the first large-scale project to use the surface was the eponymous Hunter Museum in Chattanooga,TN for Architect Randall Stout Architects. The same patina was used on the Art Gallery of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada.
The Patinas that Zahner has developed are a direct result of twenty years of experimentation with Zinc patination. The development of stable Patinas on Zinc requires a strong background in science, and an understanding of chemical compounds, various climates, and their atmospheric and local conditions. The Hunter Zinc™ patina is one of the most consistent, predictable, and stable preweathered products available in the world.
Part of a larger collection of patinas developed by Zahner, the first use of the patina was on the the Hunter Museum which the patinated zinc was then named for.
