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 6 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.
