ZINC'S VALUE PROPOSITION
Zinc casting alloys are strong, durable and cost effective engineering materials. No other alloy system provides the combination of strength, toughness, rigidity, bearing performance and economical castability. Zinc’s mechanical properties compete with and often exceed those of cast aluminum, magnesium, bronze, plastics and most cast irons. These characteristics, together with their superior finishing capabilities and choice of casting processes make zinc alloys an unrivaled material choice for saving time and money.
Process Flexibility, virtually any casting process can be used with zinc alloys.
Net shape casting process enables reduced assembly and maching operations.
Faster production and extended tool life resulting in low cost castings.
Outstanding mechanical properties and best in class surface finishes.
Zinc’s excellent bearing and wear properties allow greater design flexibility.
IZA created a dedicated micro-site for those interested in learning more about zinc die castings. The site provides detailed information on the advantages of zinc die castings, available alloys, their properties and characteristics. Along with available finishes and case studies.
