WHY ZINC ALLOYS?

Zinc alloys are versatile engineering materials. No other alloy provides the combination of strength, toughness, rigidity, bearing performance, and economic castability. Precision, quality, and repeat performance are distinct zinc alloy advantages.

Strength
Zinc alloys offer high strengths (up to 60,000 p.s.i.) and superior elongation for strong designs and formability for bending, crimping and riveting operations.

Toughness
Zinc alloys provide significantly higher impact resistance than that of cast aluminum, plastic, and grey cast iron.

Flexibility
Virtually any part configuration can be molded using zinc. High casting fluidity, regardless of part configuration, allows for thinner wall sections to be cast in zinc compared to other metals.

Precision Tolerances
Zinc alloys are castable to closer tolerances than other metal or plastics. Thus reducing or eliminating secondary operations or machining. "Net Shape" or "Zero Machining" are major advantages of miniature zinc castings.

Easy Finishing
Zinc castings are readily polished, plated, painted, chromated or anodized for decorative and/or functional service.

Long Mold Life
Low casting temperatures result in less thermal shock and extended life for zinc die casting molds. Mold life can often be more than 10 times that of an aluminum injected mold.

Clean and Recyclable
Zinc is among the cleanest melting materials available. Zinc metal is non-toxic. Scrap is a reusable resource which is efficiently recycled. Zinc alloys provide excellent strength and extreme fluidity allowing for thin walls and ready finish.

*** Only certified zinc alloys #2-#3-#5-#7 and ZA-8 are used, no re-melt is ever used.
