|Zinc Channel by Cascade Metals Series ZB, ZH, ZRH and ZU
Zinc Channel by Cascade Metals. Series ZB, ZH, ZRH and ZU. Zinc metal for construction of art glass and stained glass projects. All sizes have a flat face profile, accommodate 3 mm (1/8") thick glass and are 6 feet long.
Zinc makes a lightweight, strong and rigid came, which lends itself to glass-work projects that don't have many curved lines, are large, or have a number of straight lines that require greater support than lead would afford. Zinc accepts finishes, such as black and copper patina. Because of its strength zinc is often used for border cames, which are U-channel cames for the outside edges. Using Zinc came leaves an elegant look for glass-work, allowing both metal and glass to shine.
