Zinc Sheet .027" Soft Alloy. Please select you size above.
We do not recommend picking different thicknesses of the zinc to use on the same project as they may have different tones or grains to the material that will not match together.
Why is this referred to as Soft Zinc? The soft zinc has a higher purity than our standard zinc, as it has no titanium added and this makes it much softer to bend and fabricate for do-it-yourselfers. It is still food safe and will patina and change colors with time!
Please note that different widths of the soft zinc will look different from each other as they are from different mills. If you are buying multiple pieces, you must buy the same thickness so that the sheets will look the same.
We recommend you order a piece that is larger then you need.
PVC - We ship our zinc sheets without PVC covering. If you would like to add PVC to your sheet to help minimize scratches, click here; you may add that to your order here. Make sure to order one PVC Lining per sheet ordered.
Shipping Warning- The most economical way to ship .020, .027, .030 sheets is via UPS/FedEx rolled up in a box. However 5-10% of the time UPS/FedEx can damage the edges of the sheets in transit. UPS/FedEx most likely won't cover this via their insurance, so we recommend if you need the full width of the sheet then have the sheets shipped via freight. You must call to arrange freight shipping. Most people however don't need the full width, at they will be cutting off some of the edge or folding it under, so shipping via parcel service is fine. In addition, if you choose LTL/Freight, you MUST either reply to your original order confirmation or call if you need it shipped flat, or it will come rolled. There is an additional charge for flat freight.
Warning Due to the nature of product, some scratches and blemishes should be expected. Metal sheets, just like their antique counterparts, may contain a certain amount of flaws, smudges, and scratches especially after shipping. Most of these marks can be buffed out using 0000 Steel Wool once the sheet is installed. IMPORTANT make sure you unroll and reverse lay the sheet to help it relax and flatten back out faster. You also may apply some heat to help relax it. If you leave the sheet in the shipping box for more then 10-12 days then it becomes harder to flatten.
