July 31, 2012 (Raleigh, NC)– Umicore Building Products (UBP), the manufacturer of VMZINC® architectural zinc products, has introduced PIGMENTO Brown, a surface aspect combining the texture of UBP’s popular Quartz-Zinc with a subtle shade of brown.

According to UBP, PIGMENTO Brown shares the attributes of other PIGMENTO colors: It's durable and recyclable, finger mark proof, and available in the same dimensions and time frames as the other colors.

In 2005, VMZINC® made the news when it launched the first-ever colored zinc with the PIGMENTO® brand.

After red, blue and green, the exclusive PIGMENTO Brown color broadens the VMZINC range of colors that are highly popular with architects because they combine the natural texture of zinc with a subtle color.

“This new, warm, elegant color offers multiple creative possibilities when used with other materials or other VMZINC surface aspects,” said Daniel Nicely, managing director of the VMZINC office in Raleigh, NC.
