Material properties

GRÖMO manufactures roof drainage accessories in five different materials with nine different surfaces. Only European vendors are used as suppliers. This guarantees high quality in the raw material, and is a prerequisite for the high quality standards of GRÖMO.


Zinc

Zinc has been used as a component in brass since antiquity. The Europeans discovered the positive qualities of the metal in the 17th century. Thanks to its corrosion resistance, zinc is excellent for roof drainage and is always finding new areas of application - not least because it recycles so well.
